Pupils and teachers at Harrogate’s Ashville College got into the spirit of Red Nose Day with a non-uniform day.

Catherine Frieze, Assistant Chaplain and member of the College’s Charity Committee, said: “Red Nose Day is always a great day enjoyed by pupils and staff alike across the whole campus.

“Sadly, COVID-19 restrictions meant activities traditionally held during lunch and breaktimes, were missing this year, but nonetheless the pupils really enjoyed the day.

“Ashville has a long and proud record of supporting charities locally, regionally and nationally, and the last year has seen pupils, staff and alumni undertaking a whole series of charity challenges, from running and cycling, to swimming the English Channel.

“I’m delighted to say that at the last count we have raised £1,626 for Comic Relief.”
