Red Nose Day is back and schools across the borough have been donning fancy dress to help raise money for Comic Relief.
The charity’s theme this year is ‘making your face funny for money’.
Children have joined in the spirit of the day sporting facial disguises, with a tiger and an oompa lumpa also doing their bit for the cause.
Little Tinkers Day Nursery in Accrington held a jungle-themed day for which they have asked each child’s parents for a £2 donation.
On the menu there was face painting, a chocolate hunt and jungle biscuits.
Emma Leech, owner, said: “We just wanted to do something different.
“The children are really enjoying the face painting, especially.”
Comic Relief, founded 30 years ago, supports organisations that help both young and old people and very poor areas.
The money raised for Red Nose Day is spent by Comic Relief to transform the lives of millions of people, both at home in the UK and across Africa.
Since the Red Nose Day appeal in 2013, the charity has raised a total of £950 million.
