Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum was given a new Spotacular look by pupils from Happitots Nursery School today to mark Bank of Scotland and BBC Children in Need’s new schools fundraising campaign, ‘The Big Spotacular’ that aims to raise money for disadvantaged children and young people.

Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of a number of iconic landmarks across the UK being brightened up by Spotacular. Schools across the UK are also being encouraged to go spotty for BBC Children in Need in the weeks leading up to the Appeal Night, with children and teachers dressing in spots, selling spotty cakes and goods, and taking part in spotty themed challenges to raise money.

Wilma McFarlane, Nursery Manager,  said, “It was great fun coming to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum today and launching Spotacular! The pupils are very excited about developing their spotty fundraising ideas for ‘The Big Spotacular’ from BBC Children in Need and Bank of Scotland.”

Bank of Scotland is encouraging schools to request their free Spotacular Fundraising Kit, containing fundraising ideas, resources, and everything a school needs to go as spotty as possible. Schools that request their free kit before 16 September will be in with the chance of getting a visit from Pudsey Bear himself as part of the Pudsey Schools Roadshow. The iconic BBC Children in Need mascot will be travelling the length of the country to check on how the Spotacular fundraising is going – so schools should request their kit soon to increase their chances of being on his route.

Stuart Beaver, Director, Partnership & Community Programmes, Lloyds Banking Group said: “Our partnership with BBC Children in Need continues to produce fantastic results, in particular with the brilliant fundraising happening in schools across the country. The partnership continues to form an important part of the Group’s Helping Britain Prosper Plan, with education one of the key pillars in helping to address some of the big issues facing the people, businesses and communities of Britain today.

“Handing the fundraising planning over to the children was a great success last year, and I cannot wait to see what spotty ideas they come up with in Glasgow to raise money this year.”

Jonathan Rigby, Director of Marketing and Fundraising, BBC Children in Need, added: “This year’s ‘Big Spotacular’ schools campaign is set to be sensational and we can’t wait to see Glasgow schools sign up to get involved. Everyone’s efforts will make a huge difference to young lives across the UK so we hope to see lots of schools going spotty to help raise money.”
