Last Friday we joined the rest of the UK in celebrating Red Nose Day 2023. Through our efforts we helped raise money for Comic Relief; their mission is to decrease poverty, violence and discrimination across the world.

Comic Relief has been an active charity since 1984. They raised over £55 million last year and in total they have donated over £1 billion to charitable causes. You can find more information about how your support helps them, by clicking here:

Red Nose Day holds a special place in Mountford Manor’s heart as we think increasing the quality of life for vulnerable people is of the utmost importance. The event also gives us an opportunity to teach our pupils/students the significance of charity, kindness and understanding.To celebrate our school invited pupils to come in non-uniform following the theme of dress for joy. All the money which was collected during the day was then donated to charity.

When asked about the significance of Red Nose day, our Assistant Principal, Mrs Sanders had this to say "As a school, we feel it's important to involve the children in raising money for charity and highlight the importance of kindness and helping others".

We were proud to see our staff and pupils wearing their red noses this week. Everyone had a fantastic time raising money and we are glad to say we support Comic Relief!
