Catering students baked cakes, media make up students painted faces and others organised fundraising games like crazy golf.

But a highlight for many was the chance to throw pies at colleagues and peers.

"So far we have raised £915 and we are still selling raffle tickets to get to our target of £1,000.

"Well done to all the students and thank you to the intrepid staff and students who took a splat in the face for Children in Need."

Organised by the BBC to help youngsters have safe, happy, secure childhoods, Children in Need 2019 raised a total of £47.9million through small fundraising efforts and larger, star-studded events.
