Dressing up for Red Nose Day delights
SCHOOLCHIL DREN, workers and families took part in sponsored events for Comic Relief.
The organisation encourages communities to organise activities for Red Nose Day to raise money for causes in Africa and the UK. The team at Mail Boxes Etc on Water Lane collected donations and children at Wilmslow Grange Primary School took part in an all-day sponsored dance.
Children at St Benedict’s Primary School in Handforth took part in an Obstacle Course Challenge. Jane Gornell, headteacher, said: “Each class had to navigate a timed and competitive course involving balancing, target practice and shimmying like Bear Ghrylls through a parachute. Silk Radio visited and the children were excited their interviews were broadcast to celebrate Comic Relief.”
