Children in Need is almost upon us and with Pudsey doing the rounds Stephen Dobromylski, 50, stuck to his promise and had the loveable bear etched on his arm forever.

The fundraising stint took place at Sink and Rise tattoo parlour in St Ives on Friday (November 9), and the retired coach-driver emerged, if not a little sore, with the four-and-a-half-inch tattoo on his right forearm.

Tattooist Imi Csikos gave his time and ink for free, and Mr Dobromylski, of Swavesey, reckons he will have raised £120.

"I'd definitely do it again," he said.

"I feel really proud that I've been able to do a small bit for Children in Need, and it's made me want a second tattoo on my other arm - possibly a common lizard."
