Red Nose Day 19th March 2021
Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day has been running since its launch in 1988, and is a day designated to raise as much money as possible for the charity – with the aid of some A-list celebs. In 2019, the British public raised over £63.4 million to help people in the UK and around the world.
Red Nose Day donations help tackle important issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse and mental health stigma, all of which have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
At RCFS we have had a no uniform day and we have focused our thoughts on real life and fictional heroes. We’ve thought about what makes a real life hero and why do we admire them? What have fictional heroes got in common with the real life heroes? Some children and staff dressed up as their heroes and together we raised £141.20! Thank you all.
Comic Relief co-founder, Sir Lenny Henry, said: ‘We all need cheering up, so this year Red Nose Day will be a bit different. ‘Of course we want to raise as much money as possible for people who really need it in the UK and around the world. ‘But we also want to make you smile and bring you some laughter over the coming weeks.’ With this in mind some children told their jokes in our celebration assembly and made us all laugh!!
