The Protem team got in to the Children in Need fundraising spirit by selling Iced Pudsey Bears to staff and local businesses. Although not totally homemade our Pudsey Ginger-bears were certainly hand decorated by our artistic team (and yes we did wash our hands first). So big thanks to Fisks, Waterside Physio, Mitchell Simmonds Solicitors and Carrot Cars for raising £60.38 to support Children in Need.
We also had a competition to see who could decorate the best Pudsey. You can see the results of the Protem office team below:
Ana gave us this feminine Pudsey bear
Our Boss Ben came up with the masterpiece above.
Katy excelled herself with a pirate Pudsey
But our Winner was Christopher with his festive Pudsey Bear

Theodora Children's Trust received £42,000 to help supply fun and empowering Clown Doctors for children and their families in hospital.
Refuge provides support to children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse and are now living in a refuge. The £57,000 the project received will help to develop resilience and improve the emotional wellbeing of these young people.
The Phoenix Futures supports children aged 5-16 who are affected parental drug and alcohol addiction problems. With a grant of almost £60,000 Phoenix Futures can offer individual support sessions, group work and respite to help them to develop coping skills and increased confidence.
