PADDINGTON bear swapped Peru for Brazil with a World Cup themed birthday party.

Children at Matchborough First School celebrated the famous bear's Summer birthday by linking it with current World Cup hosts Brazil.

They raised a total of £240 for Paddington's favourite charity Touching Tiny Lives which helps sick and vulnerable babies.
