A COLCHESTER shop is one of dozens around the UK which will be supporting Children in Need by allowing little ones to stuff their own Pudsey Bear mascot.

Build-A-Bear Workshop, in Culver Square Shopping Centre, is one of 58 of the chain’s stores where kids can create their own Pudseys.

The famous bear’s friend, Blush, will also be available.

For each bear sold, Build-A-Bear Workshop will donate £5 to Children in Need while £1 from each Pudsey pyjama outfit sold will also go to the charity.

Kids can take part right up until the appeal day, on November 15.
