PEOPLE across the area dressed up and raised money for Red Nose Day.

Residents and staff at Waterloo Care Home in Bidford-on-Avon dressed in their pyjamas as well as family members arriving to enjoy the day with loved ones.

The dementia-based home's 35 residents also baked and decorated biscuits before playing some games.

Meanwhile nursery Winchcombe Farm Day saw some of its children making red nose cakes as well as dressing in red for the day.

Children of Kitebrook Preparatory School had the opportunity to buy “pots of slime” for two charities nominated by the children, Well Child and the Dinosaur Fund.

£250 was raised just from the slime sales alone and the money raised will be divided equally between the two charities.

As well as the money raised from the slime sales, Kitebrook collected money for Red Nose Day by doing something funny for money, collecting over £150.

Commenting on the day Headmistress Susan McLean said: “Kitebrook raised in total nearly £400 for charity in one day, proving small can make a big difference.

"At Kitebrook, we want our children to have an understanding of community and social responsibility, charitable activities such as these help us do this."
