Today was Red Nose Day to raise money for Comic Relief. As always, the children at GLPA embrace the desire to help people less fortunate for themselves.
Comic Relief is a British charity organisation that was founded in the United Kingdom in 1985. It raises money all year round, not just on Red Nose Day. Comic relief is the name of the charity; Red Nose Day is the name of the events on the day to raise money for Comic Relief. The first Red Nose Day was on 5th February 1988, and it raised roughly £15 million. It occurs once every two years.
Children at Green Lane Primary Academy raised money for the event by selling red noses and dressing funny. The academy raised £529!
We are very proud of the children and staff! Thank you to all who were involved in making this day a success!
