Red Nose Day fun for pupils
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.”
