PUPILS at a school in Ilminster enjoyed an usual day last Friday (March 19) for Red Nose Day.

Children and staff members wore odd socks and shared their best (and worst) jokes to celebrate the day.

Claire Oaten, headteacher at the school, said the day was filled with "smiles" and "laughter". 

"We have annually supported Comic Relief or Sports Relief as part of our courageous advocacy ethos as a school and these charities help our children understand compassion in the wider world both in this country and globally," she said.

"Everyone had a lot of fun and we saw some amazing bright and cheerful socks to make everyone smile!

"We are currently counting up the donations from our community which are much appreciated at this difficult Covid time and expect to donate over £100 to Comic Relief."

People celebrate Red Nose Day to help Comic Relief, a charity that helps those who are living in poverty - both in the UK and around the world.
