Year 10 Pupils Get Motivated for Red Nose Day

Matthew Roberts puts his head in the “guillotine” for Comic Relief.

On Friday 24th March a group of Year 10 girls took it upon themselves to grab the bull by the horns and raise some money for Red Nose Day. Honor Ratcliffe, Charlotte Bielby, Jess Liddle and Holly Kantecki take up the story.

“We got together earlier to think about what we could do as this is an important fund raising day and we didn’t want to miss the chance to take part. We decided the whole school should have a non-uniform day with a ‘wear red for Red Nose Day’ theme.  Everyone had to pay £1 for the privilege of being able to come to school in their own clothes.

We also had a splat the teacher/Sixth Former game where wet sponges could be thrown at the person standing behind a painted screen with their head in a gap. The person wanting to throw the sponge had to pay £1 for three sponges.  Mr Gisbourne was the only teacher brave enough to take part in that. The Sixth Formers who took part were Alfie, Daniel, Sam and Matthew. That was great and a lot of good fun was had by everyone especially at the end when people were soaking wet; it drew quite a crowd of onlookers. Thank you to those who took part in this.

We raised £292.50, which we are very pleased about; a big thank you to everyone who donated.”

“The money we raised this Red Nose Day will help people living unimaginably tough lives across both the UK and Africa.”
