High demand for charity red noses at Wisbech Grammar School led to a sell-out of the entire stock – but the pounds kept coming in anyway.

The sale took place at the school today to raise funds for Red Nose Day, the television benefit organised by Comic Relief, and the students put their heads together and decided to keep contributing when the supply of noses dried up.

Head of houses Tim Chapman said: “The noses sold out because the demand was so high, so the pupils just donated £1 to support the good causes and I am delighted with the response.”
