Roydon Primary School will not sell red noses in an effort to reduce its use of single-use plastics
Roydon Primary School, near Diss, has announced in a letter to parents and carers that it would not be selling red noses in an effort to reduce its use of single-use plastics.
Headteacher Sarah Bradford said that she still welcomes children wearing red noses which they have bought elsewhere or red accessories to show their support of Red Nose Day.
The school also offers painting the children’s noses red and suggests donations of 50p to £1 which they will send to Comic Relief.
Red Nose Day, this year on Friday, March 15, was first held in 1988, with comedian Lenny Henry hosting telethon from Ethiopia on February 8 that year.
Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and internationally.
The live TV telethon on BBC1 will air from 7pm to 10pm on BBC1, 10pm to 10.35pm on BBC2 and from 10.35pm to 12.30am back on BBC1.
Highlights include the follow-up to British comedy classic Four Weddings and a Funeral.
