SHEEP from North Somerset are offering their support to this year's Children
in Need by painting their woolly coats to mimic Pudsey bear.
Hundreds of the sheep at Puxton Park in nearby Weston-super-Mare will be
transformed with yellow, green, blue and pink spots to resemble the newly
designed Pudsey Bear.
The sheep will be part of the park's Children In Need celebrations, on November 16, which will raise vital funds towards the 2012 event.
Children in Need is held every year to raise funds for disadvantaged youngsters in the UK through a series of events, one-off TV specials and the official BBC programme.
Youngsters who follow the spotty sheep theme will receive discounted entry to Puxton and the funds raised will be donated directly to Children In Need.
In addition staff will taking part in a team relay by sitting in a bath tub full of jelly to help boost the funds raised and there will be a host of other entertainment on offer.
Head of Park, Susie Johnson, said: "Every year celebrities sing, dance, and do all sorts of crazy things to help raise money and this year promises to be bigger and better.
"Puxton wants to get behind the initiative and is going slightly crazy itself by painting all of its sheep spotty and if you follow the theme and turn up spotty, you will be helping to support this worthy cause.
"One of members of staff will also be doing something even more crazy and will sit in a bath full of jelly to attract sponsorship, so come along and show your support."
It is hoped the BBC will visit Puxton Park on the day to film the various activities going on at the park in aid of Children In Need.
