Little Alf has his ears on for Children in Need!

Every year me and Little Alf do our best to support charities and help raise awareness. I’ve always believed if you have a big following or presence in the world then you should do your bit to help with whatever you are posting online, it is reaching a wider audience and helping the world. Although we can’t help every charity as that would be impossible, we do our best to help where we can and this week we are showing our support to Children in Need with the Pudsey ears and Countryfile beanie. I love the beanie as it has two ears on the top which look very cute.

I roped in Alfie and Pepper to help me with some photo’s this morning, Alfie wore the Pudsey ears as he kept shaking the beanie off his head and then once it fell off he was picking it up with his mouth and throwing it in the air, which is not a good idea when you’re trying to take photos. He seemed to quite like wearing the Pudsey ears and when I got the camera out he stood and posed waiting for me to take a photo. Pepper wore the Countryfile Ramble hat which has been promoted across the TV on Countryfile over the past few weeks, Pepper is slightly older than Alfie and a little more mature so he was quite happy to wander around the field showing off his beanie as he posed for photos – I personally thought the beanie really suited him and I think he did too as when I went to take his beanie off he kept walking away…

For those of you who don’t know what Children in Need is, there is a lot of information online where you can find out more, get involved and raise some funds this November. I remember working on projects at school for Children in Need where we did a ‘bake sale’ and raised over £1,500 for the amazing charity.

Children in Need is the BBC UK Charity, which started in 1980 and has raised over £600 million since it first began – how amazing is that? They help disabled children and young people across the UK and highlight it all every year on an annual TV programme which is this Friday – I love watching it every year, the stories are so inspiring and you can guarantee I will end up crying at the stories.

Me and Alfie personally love their Pudsey Bear mascot – he’s very cute!
