PUPILS across Furness joined the Red Nose Day festivities for Comic Relief.

Walney School, Newton Primary School and George Romney Junior School in Dalton were among those who took part to raise money for the charity.

Walney School said its students showed their support for the day, with red noses selling out in record time.

They came in non-uniform and Year Seven went ‘Funny For Money’ when they competed to tell the funniest joke.

And a bake sale raised more than £120.

Star bakers of the cakes will receive prizes in assembly next week.

Elsewhere, Newton pupils joined in the fun with a wacky hair day.

Ocean-themed, palm tree and punk were just some of the crazy styles pupils embraced on the day.

In Dalton, a walk was among the events held on the day for George Romney pupils, who threw their weight behind the day.

Greengate Junior School pupils joined in the fun with a ‘dress up in red’ day.

And the school made £125 for Comic Relief by selling 200 red noses.

Ramsden Robins Pre Nursery children did their bit with their own bake sale.

Comic relief was founded in 1985 and aims to raise money for children in poverty.

More than £1 billion has been raised in the charity’s 30 year history.
