Hundreds of pounds raised for Comic Relief as schools across Fenland embrace Red Nose Day

YOUNGSTERS at schools across Fenland enjoyed a fun-filled Friday last week as hundreds of pounds were raised for Comic Relief.

Toddlers and staff at Maple Grove Pre-School in March made a donation to wear red for the day and raised �131.17.

Doing something funny for money saw children and staff at Burrowmoor Primary School in March raise more than �500. Many arrived at school with crazy hair and the sale of red noses - provided by Sainsbury’s - also boosted the school’s donation.

Children at Clarkson Infant and Nursery School in Wisbech also paid to dress in red to help raise more than �300 on Red Nose Day. Staff at the school also organised a cake sale.
