Holy Redeemer Catholic Primary School, Pershore

For Comic Relief this year pupils at Holy Redeemer had a head-to-head battle of the classes bake-off.

Pupils and parents baked away furiously on Wednesday evening, bringing their cakes into school on Thursday to sell at an after-school cake sale.

Each class competed to see who could sell the most cakes and raise the most money for Comic Relief.

On Friday we all came to school dressed in red and wearing odd shoes, bringing a donation for Comic Relief.

All the money raised by each class for the bake-off and odd shoe day was added up and the class that had raised the most money got to pour baked beans all over Mr Adams (class 2 teacher).

It was a hotly contested competition, but class 5 just beat class 2 to it and each pupil (and Mrs Williams their teacher) got a tin of beans each with which to do the dastardly deed.

The condemned man entered the hall to a slow drum beat, where a very excited group of children and parents (who had paid and extra £1 to witness the event) were waiting.

Over all £579 was raised and a good time was had by all…well apart from Mr Adams, who is still wiping beans out of his hair!

Bowbrook House School, near Pershore

Pupils from Bowbrook House School, near Pershore, teamed up with Easigrass to raise money for Red Nose Day.

Even the car was wearing its red nose.

Pupils swapped one item of their school uniform for red as well as entering a competition to name the ‘Easigrass’ car.

The school has raised over £400 already and is still counting!

Pictured are middle and junior school pupils with, left, Mr Keys MD of Easigrass and, right, Mr Allen, headmaster of Bowbrook House School.

Mr Allen said: "For a school of only two hundred pupils we have already raised £400 and we are still counting.

"We are very grateful to Mr Keys of Easigrass for the loan of the car which has generated much excitement for the day. The pupils’ suggestions for names for the grass car are flooding in!"

"From nursery and reception children who enjoyed stroking the car and to year 11 design and business studies students who saw the marketing and business opportunities which can be generated by such a novelty vehicle, it was a tremendous learning opportunity which is also good fun for a good cause."

Jessie's sacrifice

Jessie J will pull off a hair-erasing feat as she shaves her head on live TV on Friday night, while many of the biggest names in comedy do their bit for Comic Relief.

Miranda Hart, Dawn French, James Corden, David Walliams and Hollywood star Will Ferrell will appear in sketches or in person during the evening in the traditional Red Nose Day broadcast on BBC One and BBC Two.

Price Tag singer Jessie - also a panellist on The Voice - will be enduring one of the biggest sacrifices as she is parted from her glossy black bob during the programme to boost the millions of pounds being raised.

Red Nose Day celebrates its 25th anniversary this year with presenters for tonight's show including Rob Brydon, John Bishop, Davina McCall, Nick Grimshaw, Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand.
