Fundraisers from across Sussex will be dressing up, making cakes and doing whatever it takes to raise money for Children In Need.

The annual fundraising event takes place today (Friday, December 13) to raise money for children’s causes across the UK with people from across Sussex among those taking part.

Schools, work places and community groups will be among those fundraising for Children In Need today.

Their efforts follow hot on the heels of The One Show’s Rickshaw Challenge - a cycle ride from Land’s End to the East End - which travelled through Sussex earlier this week.

The BBC’s South East Today show will also be holding its evening Children In Need party at the Redoubt Fortress in Eastbourne
