Schools, nurseries and colleges from across Suffolk have been doing their bit for Children in Need holding penny collections and painting nails to raise funds.
Pupils and teachers at Martlesham Primary Academy near Woodbridge all wore spots to show their support, donating £1 each to Children in Need.
Headteacher Emma Churchman said: "The day started with house leaders greeting families and starting the penny challenge.
"We were amazed to see the penny trails that were created. The winning team managed to collect enough pennies to make three lines along the playground."
House leaders Mia and Tabitha said: "This challenge enabled us to show the power of collaboration and we are so proud of what we achieved together."
In Bury St Edmunds, children at Abbots Green Academy filled a wishing well with pennies and the school's nursery class held a week-long cake sale which raised £59.55.
Suffolk New College beauty students also got involved with fundraising - painting nails to raise cash.
