Today, people around the country are celebrating Red Nose Day 2021. All of the proceeds raised by the event are used by the charity to support vulnerable people in the UK and all over the world.
Since launching the first Red Nose Day in 1985, Comic Relief has helped a staggering number of people, and tens of millions of pounds are raised every year.
While this year the day itself will look a little different than usual, the money raised is still as important as ever. As social distancing has made a lot of fundraising activities difficult, there are still plenty of ways people around the country have been sharing laughter and raising funds this year.
As always, here at Zouch we marked Red Nose Day with a charity collection in aid of Comic Relief. The children and staff all wore red to celebrate. The children at Zouch are always keen to get involved in fundraising events and charity appeals.
Mr Williams, Vice-Principal said: "Charity events are a big part of our school. Through these, the children develop and apply their school values such as kindness, respect and determination."
Red Nose Day is such a special event because it allows young people to have fun, laugh, and experience the joy of raising money to help others.
