It’s Red Nose Day and all over north Northumberland people have been joining in with the fun.

Young and the young-at-heart in schools, workplaces and at home are doing something funny for money to raise cash for Comic Relief.

Red noses are the order of the day as people sit in baths of beans, tell jokes, dress up and generally have a good time - all in the name of charity.

Connor and Georgina Dollin got dressed up before taking part in a sponsored obstacle race at Belford First School.

Mum Lula Stanfield made a skirt for daughter Megan out of two Sainsbury’s 10p carrier bags and even used the handles to make some ribbons for her pigtails.

She said: “It took a few hours to sew them together last night resulting in very sore fingers. I had one very happy girl skipping up to school in Shilbottle.”

Tory candidate Anne-Marie Trevelyan and her team turned from blue to red - but only in the nose department!

At St Michael’s First School, Alnwick, pupils decided to change one thing about themselves. They sold more than 100 noses.
