Pupils and staff at Christ College Brecon’s Junior Section, St Nicholas House, definitely took on board the Comic Relief slogan of ‘Do something funny for money’ as they raised funds on Red Nose Day.
The pupils started off by selling all of the 60 red noses they’d been allocated (for 27 pupils!), and wore their own clothes and made their faces funny for money.
Pupils had an opportunity to enter a draw to paint the staff faces too. Each vote cost 25p and one winner was selected to paint each member of the St Nicholas House staff team.
Great excitement surrounded the big moment when we the winners’ names were drawn. Mr Kerr was painted as a fairy by Finley Marnell, Mrs Lewis was painted as a mouse by Ruby Marnell, Miss Hallinan was painted as a hairy monster by Charlotte Wildee, Mr Jones was painted as a dinosaur by Edward Habgood and Mrs Gardner was painted as Zeus by Joseff Eynon.
The children were hoping to raise £150, enough to buy a wheelchair for a disabled child in Zambia. There were huge cheers when funds were counted up and pupils realised that they had raised a whopping £160 just in St Nicholas. The rest of Christ College also joined in the fundraising effort with pupils paying £1 each to wear an outfit or casual clothes of their choice. Overall, the school raised a fantastic £465 for all the worthy causes under the Comic Relief umbrella.
