Red Nose Day

March 25, 2017

 

St Giles School took part in Red Nose Day.

 

Comic Relief is an operating British charity, founded in 1985 by the comedy scriptwriter Richard Curtis and comedian Lenny Henry in response to famine in Ethiopia. The highlight of Comic Relief's appeal is Red Nose Day, a biennial telethon held in March, alternating with sister project Sport Relief.

 

Red Nose Day is a UK-wide fundraising event organised by Comic Relief every two years. On Red Nose Day everyone is encouraged to cast inhibitions aside, put on a Red Nose and fundraise – celebrities included! It culminates in a night of cutting edge comedy and moving documentary films on BBC One.

 

The day started with some imaginative, crazy hair styles and hair colours for those wanting to join in with the Crazy hair and non-uniform.
