Bright Sparks, the centre for children with complex additional needs, is celebrating receiving funding from BBC Children in Need.

The Bonnyrigg-based group has been awarded almost £130,000 from the charity – its second three-year grant from the funder.

After meeting the children at a “lunch and play” session, Pudsey turned up at a Valentine’s night fundraiser to surprise everyone with the news of the grant.

Bright Sparks chairman Louise Gough said: “We are thrilled to receive this continued funding. It will make a huge difference for disabled children in Midlothian, and it’s a great boost to know that Children in Need believe in us.”
