Parents Mark and Alice Beadle whose toddler son Ethan has cerebral palsy were invited to attend the BBC's big regional Pudsey Party in Carlisle last night.

They were there with Heel and Toe children’s charity which supports children with the condition and other disabilities with physio and conductive education.

Ethan Beadle has been helped by charity Heel and Toe.

The star-studded Children In Need appeal show was the most-watched programme of the day as more than £50 million was raised for the charity.

A total of £50,595,053 was donated to the cause - meaning more than £1 billion has been raised by the charity since the first major appeal in 1980.
