Pupils and staff at Miller Academy Primary School and ELC made a dazzling contribution to Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day as they raised hundreds of pounds after donning brightly coloured clothes.

A coin collection amounted to £350 for the charity extravaganza which culminates in an evening of live television on BBC One and makes a difference to the lives of millions of people across the UK and around the world.

Speaking after Friday's event, Miller Academy's head teacher Jacqui Budge said: “Our families have, as usual, supported this fundraiser superbly. Our children and staff looked so very cheerful in their clothes of many colours and their generous donations raised the impressive sum of £350 for this charity.”

So far this year's Red Nose Day as a whole has raised more than £52 million.
