Sponsored events took place in schools and offices across the city on Friday as part of the national fundraising event.

Staff at Boroughbury Medical Centre in Craig Street held a bake sale, while Newark Hill Academy pupils donned the special Red Noses for the day.

There were a series of activities at RSA in Lynchwood, where a number of staff members were put in the stocks for a custard pie to be thrown in their face, workers took part in a space hopper race, and others dressed in fancy dress.
