Red Nose Day fun for pupils

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

RES­I­DENTS did their bit to help raise a whop­ping £73mil­lion for Comic Re­lief.

Among the fundrais­ers were chil­dren at Bolling­ton Cross Pri­mary School who raised al­most £500 be­tween them.

All the stu­dents donned red noses and bright colours for the fundraiser, but it was 11-year-old Alicia Ru­bin who went the ex­tra mile, swim­ming 120 lengths and rais­ing £213.15 to­wards the char­ity pot.

Staff at Be­long Care Home on Kennedy Av­enue put their money where their mouth is and tucked into wa­ter bugs, crick­ets, meal worms and a taran­tula burger for the cause, and chil­dren at Park Lane Spe­cial School took part in a spe­cial tal­ent show.

Katy Wadsworth, from Park Lane, said: “The tal­ent was of a high qual­ity and it was hard for pupils to vote for a win­ner af­ter all the acts amazed us all, but a per­for­mance of Cold­play’s Par­adise on the drums took the tro­phy.”

And kids at Bosley St Mary’s Pri­mary School dressed up and told jokes as part of their Comic Re­lief fundrais­ing.

Rachel Mor­tishireSmith, from the school, said: “We had lots of fun dress­ing in red, telling our best - and worst - jokes, eat­ing lots of cake and tak­ing crazy photo booth pictures - all to raise funds for Comic Re­lief.”
