A comedy gig held on Friday, February 6, by Calder High School left a room in stitches as pupils raised money for Red Nose 2015.

Pupils at Calder High School in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire were set the challenge of making their fellows pupils laugh with some of their very best jokes.

There were plenty of snorts and giggles throughout the gig as pupil’s kicked off the school’s Red Nose Day fundraising effort.

Following the comedy gig Year 9 pupils Jake Ormerod and Fazan Hussain and Year 11 pupils Lili Sharman – Hutt and Lila Nicholson were given permission to make their deputy headteacher’s face as funny as they could, and then put him in the school’s red nose-themed stocks to receive a “get your own back” punishment.

Deputy headteacher, Mr Andy Taylor, was the unfortunate member of staff and had his face painted as a cat before he was sponged in front of a crowd of excited pupils.

He said: “We’re really passionate about supporting Red Nose Day so we’re only too happy to look a bit silly every now and then to support a great cause.”

Comic Relief uses the cash raised through Red Nose Day to help vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa.

For Red Nose Day 2015, UK schools have a special mission to raise enough money to help get 300,000 children across Africa into education and learning.
