We’re funny and we know it
Hair shaving, red nose wearing and face painting youngsters played their part in raising vital funds for Comic Relief on Friday.
Pupils at Nayland, Wells Hall and Great Waldingfield primary schools got involved with the initiative by organising a variety of sponsored activities, all while dressed in their best red outfits and sporting the signature Comic Relief red nose.
At Anglia Sunshine Nursery in Sudbury, the children baked cakes and put on their best funny faces for a photo booth, with all the proceeds donated to Comic Relief.
Nursery manager Jeana Nabi said: “We hope the funds we raised make a little bit of a difference to those children, close by or further afield, who need it most.”
One youngster from Lavenham Primary School, 10-year-old Kitty Fowles-Smith, raised more than £750 after shaving off her waist-long hair.
Sudbury hair salon Shear Genius helped Kitty’s fundraising effort with a charity raffle donated to by Friars Street businesses.
Kitty’s mum, Julie, said the afternoon proved to be a huge success.
“I think she was excited,” said Julie. “I don’t think she was as nervous as all the mums.
“Everyone is impressed that she has done it for charity.”
