Comic Relief-Red Nose Day 2015

Sarah Short - Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK, with a vision of a just world, free from poverty. They work tirelessly all year round to help make their vision a reality. In the years since the charity started out in 1985, with the support of some remarkable people, they have achieved amazing things and raised over £950 million.

At Ecclesfield we are proud to support this charity and have already begun our 
 Red noses have been on sale at break times and will continue to be until our stock diminishes. Each nose will cost £1 which will go towards Comic Relief. On Friday 13th March we are asking children to ‘make your face funny for money!’ and bring in a donation which will support Red Nose Day. These are just a few ideas for the children:

Face paint: Pay a donation to come in with their face painted.

Daft disguisePay a fee to wear a disguise for the day or go the whole hog in full dress up.

Hair-raising: Pay a donation and colour your hair red.

Bigwig in a wig: Wear a funny wig for the day.

Children are allowed to wear non-uniform for the day—the sillier the better!

These events will happen at lunch time and break time on Friday 13th March.
