31 Mar 31/03/11 – Appleford School Raises £281 for Comic Relief!
On Friday 18th March Appleford School pupils raised a fantastic £281 for Comic Relief. Red noses were sold to pupils and staff for £1 each and were sold out in minutes. Some of these were made into earring and were worn by several staff members, to make the ultimate Red Nose Day fashion statement!
Extra funds were raised by allowing the children to ‘dress down’ for and extra £1, but only if they wore at least one garment which was bright red.
Dylan, a pupil in the junior school said:
“We really liked wearing the silly red noses to raise some money for children who don’t have as many toys and things as we do.”
The school’s award winning chef, Wayne Harris, created fairy cakes which were decorated with cherries to symbolise red nose day which were greatly enjoyed by all.
