Pupils have dressed up as their favourite cartoon characters, swapped their normal noses for funny red ones and played games to help raise funds for Comic Relief.

Businesses have also got involved, as they have organised events, such as cake sales, raffles and coffee mornings to support communities living in poverty in the UK and across the globe.

Staff at Freshfield PR, in Preston, got creative with Maltesers as they baked cakes using Comic Relief’s #bakeamillion fund-raising initiative.
