It’s a brilliant time of year for festivals and Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights also celebrated by Jains and Sikhs, is one of the most popular with children. The lights are lovely so today, Helen and Barney make their own multi-coloured candle to celebrate. The team will also be attempting to break a world record as part of the Go Pyjamas appeal for Children in Need.
