A sea of red noses swept through Goodrich and Ellwood primary schools to mark Red Nose Day on March 18.

Pupils and teachers alike from both schools wore scarlet clothes for Comic Relief last Friday.

Ellwood children made their own red noses from egg boxes, watched a puppet show and raced each other wearing their noses in the playground.

"It's been an absolutely fantastic day," said Joanne Mencarini, a teacher from Ellwood School. "We had three individual races in the afternoonN – the winners were Aaron Powell, Harry Burton and Charlie Willetts."

Children from Goodrich CofE Primary dressed up as their favourite celebrities for a talent show organised by Year 6 members of the school council. Headmaster Tony Griffiths said: "It's been madness and mayhem here, but for such a good cause. The talent show put TV celebrities to shame!

Even I sang a solo in the afternoon, You Raise Me Up _ this alone raised £100. I am very proud of everybody and pleased to say that we have raised more than £300 for Comic Relief in total."

There were cake sales at both schools in the afternoon.
