Children across the south east were left red faced after turning up to school in their pyjamas on Friday.

Youngsters from Grove Lea Primary, Hemsworth, raised around £151 for Comic Relief with their non-uniform day.

Paula Bennett, school administrator, said: “The children had a great time, they always love a good non-uniform day. It’s a good excuse for something a bit different and the best bit is we raised lots of money for Comic Relief. We also sold red noses throughout school.”

Kinsley J&I School also held a non uniform day and sold red noses, raising around £450.

Di Carey, senior administrator, said: “The children all made a donation to leave their uniforms at home. Everyone had a great time. The pupils really enjoyed themselves and were more than happy to raise money for such a good cause.”

Red Nose Day runs every two years and raises funds for disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa. The 2015 campaign has raised a massive £78m so far.
