Ryedale fundraisers play their part for Comic Relief

RYEDALE went red on Friday as fundraisers played their part in Comic Relief Day.
Red noses were donned along with a variety of fancy dress from weird and wonderful hair styles to Eighties fashions.
At Norton Primary School staff provided a photograph of themselves with a ‘celebrity hair do’ which went on display for the children to try and guess who was who. Children also came to school dressed as their favourite celebrity from Mr Bean to Minnie Mouse.
Students from Lady Lumley’s School in Pickering took part in gunging activities – targeting their teachers – as well as mixed netball, live music and a staff versus pupils quiz.
They also had a ‘Where’s Wally’ or 1980s themed dress code for the day raising about £1,750 for Comic Relief.
Saxophonist Snake Davies joined in the fun at St Joseph’s RC School in Pickering.
Pupils changed their normal uniform colour from blue to red for the day and took part in a musical workshop with Snake who was visiting the town for a concert at the Memorial Hall.
Headteacher Lisa Brown said: “All the children from nursery to Year Six watched Snake play a variety of instruments and music from classical to television themes.
“They really enjoyed it and even the younger children sat and clapped along. It was a really good day.”
