People across the Fylde coast had their red noses at the ready and faced the funny to ensure donations for Comic Relief gathered pace.

Schools, gyms and workplaces got into the spirit and held their own special take on how to celebrate Red Nose Day yesterday.

Gym enthusiasts in Thornton got the ball rolling by putting on their headbands and colourful clothes for an 80’s themed Zumba party.

Donations from the class totalled £431.

Organiser Wendy Holland said: “65 people all dressed up in their finest 80s gear with all our class fees and raffle money going to Comic Relief.”

Two of the loudest members of staff at WestPark Kindergarten were tested by taking on a sponsored silence.

The kindergarten had activities on all week and before the end of Friday had raised more than £200.

Pupils at Freckleton Church of England Primary School got involved in their own “wacky hair day”.

Everyone at the school also brought copper coins that could be used to make big red noses.

Teacher Lisa Patterson said: “From the neck down, children were as normal, dressed in their school uniform but from the neck up they dressed as wacky as they could.”

Red Nose Day festivities gripped Waterloo Primary in South Shore with 671 pupils getting involved in different activities. Ninety pupils from Year 5 and 6 visited DW Fitness on Vicarage Lane, Blackpool, to try their hand at football, dodgeball and rugby.

Children at Clifton Lodge Nursery in St Annes took a step on the “wild side” as they dressed as crocodiles, leopards and monkeys for Red Nose Day.

Children at SafeHands Green Start Nursery in Blackpool held a wild animal tea party for Red Nose Day.

Nursery manager Danielle Forrest said: “The staff and children all came to nursery dressed as different animals.”
