Here at BBC Children in Need, we're always delighted when people decide to fundraise for us. One of the most popular ways that people raise money is via Cake Sales and Tea Parties - so when our old friend Peter Andre got in touch and told us that he wanted to hold a special Tea Party to raise money for us, we were thrilled.
Peter transformed his Brighton cafe into a Pudsey-themed tea party for the day - and invited along some very special local children and their parents to be his guests at the party.
"You wouldn't think the area where I live, or indeed where many of us live around the UK, has problems like this," said Peter.
"But the stories of social deprivation, poverty and how people are struggling aren't coming from a Third World country. They are right here. I wanted to celebrate the good work BBC Children In Need does and give people who really need it a good day out."
Young people, children and parents from projects in Brighton that receive BBC Children in Need funding came along to the party. Having fun were people from The Young Carers' Centre, The Crew Club, Fun in Action for Children, Brighton Unemployed Centre's Families Project, and the Brighton and Hove Integration Project.
We'd like to say a huge thank you to Peter for hosting the party - you're a true gentleman! Why not follow in Peter's footsteps and organise your own tea party to raise money for BBC Children in Need?
