Shoppers who visit Moor Market on Friday 17 November will be greeted by stallholders dressed in pyjamas. But it is not a case of people forgetting to dress rather a chance to raise money for a good cause.

Traders will be raising money for BBC Children In Need and many of them are swapping their daywear for nightwear. Others will be dressed up as Pudsey, the bear who is the mascot of the charity.

Collection buckets will be on the stalls and it is hoped anyone coming to the market will join in the fun and donate. The day has been the organised by Lisa Parker, who runs the Bitz and Bitez café.  She said:  “Children In Need is a good cause and organising this event is a great way of bringing people together as well as raising money for the charity.”

Louise Pearson, Markets Manager at Sheffield City Council, praised the traders for their efforts:  “It’s great to see the traders working together for Children In Need, they’ve worked really hard to organise it and we hope the public visit the Moor market and support them and the cause.”

The event will start at 8am and finish when the market closes at 5.30pm.
