Look SPOTacular to raise money

Fundraise in style by dressing up for BBC Children in Need Day.

An easy way to collect sponsorship is to go about your day-to-day life in fancy dress – to the office, to the shops or anywhere else you may end up.

You could even take on one of our other suggested challenges, or come up with your own, all while dressed in your new SPOTacular outfit.

Here are just a few ideas for a Pudsey-inspired makeover:

1. Spots

There can be no mistaking what you’re up to on BBC Children in Need Day if you’re sitting in the office dressed head-to-toe in spots! The more spots the better. We love spots.

Of course, you could go subtle with a spotty tie or socks instead. Whatever you decide, collect sponsorship wherever you can. Your fundraising efforts will make a huge difference.

2. Your “Zoom outfit”

It’s a running joke that – when working from home – we keep our PJ bottoms  on while dressing formal on top for video calls. So why not own it and go into work like that for a good cause? You could even combine this with the above theme and sport some spotty slippers.

3. Transform your friends or colleagues

Are you a talented hairstylist? Face painter? Nail artist? In return for sponsorship, you could offer up those skills in the staff room or at a BBC Children in Need party, helping your friends and colleagues to achieve their own SPOTacular looks.
