Red Nose Day 2021

19 March 2021
Red Nose Day 2021

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.

This year for Comic Relief, we are challenging children and staff at Forest and Sandridge to dress up as a superhero or a real life superhero. The theme of Comic Relief this year is 'funny is power' and reminding us all that laughter is always the best kind of superpower to have, especially after such a strange and challenging year for us all.

Throughout the day, children will be taking part in a range of superhero and laughter challenges set by their class teacher in the bubbles. Children and staff will be encouraged to 'Share a Smile' throughout the day by sharing a joke or making someone laugh. We are really looking forward to raising money and celebrating Comic Relief this year.

Miss Gale said "We are really excited to be supporting Comic Relief this year in school, we have an exciting day planned and are challenging the children to unleash their superpower of laughter throughout the day!"

At Forest & Sandridge C.E. Primary School, we believe Red Nose Day is much more than just an opportunity for us to arrange a number of fun and exciting fundraising activities. The event gives us the platform to teach our pupils about the importance of charity, being generous, and supporting and helping others. These lessons will help to develop good habits that last long into their adult life.

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.
