In photos: Red Nose Day fun at Highbridge's King Alfred School

Staff and students at King Alfred School in Highbridge raised more than £1,000 by holding a non-uniform and fancy dress day for Red Nose Day on Friday (March 13th).

"Tthe students and staff did the school proud, with everyone showing a strong community spirit," Assistant Head Teacher Jean-Paul Hoskins told

"Each of the school's year groups chose one of several causes to help with its fundraising - these were helping families afford school; helping children who have to care for their families; and helping children who do not live at home."

"The fundraising and awareness didn’t just stop there," he added. "Throughout the week, assemblies and tutorials have raised further awareness and students have responded by 'Doing Something Funny for Money'. This varied from a sponsored silence to being tied to a friend."
