Worksop awash with colour and comedy...

Fancy dress, red noses and teachers getting gunked... it can only be Comic Relief.

Worksop was awash with colour and comedy on Friday as hundreds of people joined in the fundraising.

Valley School raised an incredible £1,350 during their non uniform day, which saw everyone pull together for a team effort.

Valley pupil Rachel Smith, 12, single-handedly collected £28 in sponsorship for keeping quiet all day, while her classmates Jodie Bell and Georgina May tied their hands together.

And Valley’s own super-fruit hero Ben ‘Grape Boy’ Storey set foot outside for a sponsored walk.

The Maths department even showed their funny side by dressing as the 118 men.

Meanwhile, over at Langold Lake, pyjama-clad staff and residents from Forest Hill Care Home stepped out for a sponsored walk.

And the chaps from Romans Rest Golf Society came over all feminine as they teed off a round of golf – all in the name of charity, of course.

“We decided to play the game dressed in drag,” explained golfer Ian Mitchell.

“It was well worth it – so far we’ve raised £600.”

Pupils at Portland School had their cake and ate it, raising a whopping £460 through their bake sale. “This is yet another example of staff and students doing active citizenship for good causes,” said headteacher Elaine Hamilton.

Over at Sainsbury’s, staff had legs as red as their noses after they volunteered for a sponsored leg wax.

Other daring stunts of the day involved gunk and gloop as school children got their own back on their teachers.

Norbridge headteacher George Huthart gritted his teeth as he was covered head to toe in slime. The stunt raised a fantastic £440.

“It was disgusting, but I didn’t mind because it was for a good cause,” he said.

It was a similar scene at Redlands Primary School, where deputy head Steve Walker and former Sheffield United and Worksop Town player Steve Adams were well and truly canned.

Pupils brought along a variety of tinned foods to throw over the pair, who ended up paddling in beans, mushy peas and custard.
