CHILDREN at St James’ First School and Nursery in Alderholt enjoyed a day of colourful activities to celebrate Red Nose Day.

On Friday, March 19, they came dressed for the occasion in colourful outfits and there was face painting too.

The children took part in red nose-themed activities, designed to help them understand where the donated money goes.

A Justgiving page was also set to raise money for Comic Relief. So far more than £100 has been raised. To donate visit:
