YOUNG and old across Chester have been revelling in the spirit of Comic Relief.
Pupils at the Arches CP School experimented with crazy hairstyles as part of Red Nose Day on Friday, while students at Dee Point Primary School wore red-themed fancy dress.
Staff and children at St Theresa’s Catholic Primary School turned up for lessons in pyjamas, and little ones at Highfield CP School tried their hand at cake decorating to boost the coffers.
The Comic Relief charity was founded in 1985 by comedy writer Richard Curtis and comedian Lenny Henry in response to famine in Ethiopia.
It raises millions of pounds annually for projects home and abroad through two big fundraising campaigns, Red Nose Day and Sport Relief.
This year, singer Jessie J shaved off her long locks, comedian Peter Kay travelled the country and the public took part in fund-raising stunts to help raise a record £75 million for Comic Relief.
