Joking, skipping and baking raises £350 for Comic Relief at Sherston Primary School

Children from Sherston Primary School sang, joked, skipped, danced and baked cakes on Friday to raise a massive £350 for Comic Relief.

Staff and pupils all dressed up in an array of red outfits, wigs, shoes and red noses to raise funds and awareness for the Comic Relief Charity, which celebrated its 25th year this year.

On Friday morning, the whole school joined together for a special Comic Relief assembly, to learn about the kinds of projects supported by the Comic Relief fund.  Children from every year group performed their own jokes and two year 5 pupils put on a choreographed skipping performance to music.

In the afternoon, Headteacher Nick Bowditch organized a water-carrying relay, to help the children understand more about the lives of children in developing countries that their fundraising efforts would go to support.

Mr Bowditch said: “It makes me very proud to see the whole school coming together, along with our staff, to raise money and awareness about the Comic Relief programme. Everyone has put a real effort into today and we’ve raised over £350, which is a fantastic achievement.”
