The Red Nose Day fun is in full swing across Uttlesford as schools, workplaces and even politicians take part in fundraising activities.
At St Thomas More School in Saffron Walden children have been playing games organised by the school’s House Captains. They have also been wearing red noses in support of Comic Relief.
Rickling Green Primary School held a ‘Danceathon’ in the school playground, while the school council at Thaxted Primary School invited everyone to come to school in a onesie and bring a donation of at least 50p.
Great Sampford Primary School raised £268 by selling red noses and through a ‘Colour Clash’ non-uniform day where the children could wear the brightest colours possible.
At Wimbish Primary School the children were able to come to school dressed in red, as well as wearing their Comic Relief red noses.

Meanwhile, youngsters at St Mary’s Primary School, in Castle Street, have gone to school wearing fancy dress and red noses, while some have had their faces painted.
And they aren’t the only ones. Even Essex’s MEP Richard Howitt got in on the act this morning as he had his face painted by schoolchildren, while Saffron Walden paramedic Chris Cooper tweeted a picture of himself wearing a big red nose.
