The Boys Dress Up For Red Nose Day

Photobucket

Today is Red Nose Day (Comic Relief). For our American friends, Red Nose Day is a charity day. It is called Red Nose because it was started quite a few years ago now by Comedians.

Thousands all over the British Isles will be wearing their comic red noses/t-shirts and will be taking part in sponsored events. This year the slogan is Do Something Funny For Money.

Tonight the BBC will be running an evening of comedy events that will go on until the early hours of the morning. People do all sorts of things from sitting in a bath of baked beans to running in fancy dressed costume. The ideas that ordinary people come up with are many and varied. It is amazing how inventive folk can be.

Most of the schools take part and Nathan and Daniel's are no exception. Today the children were all allowed to go in fancy dress.

I thought you would like to see the photos. Firstly, Daniel as Mr. Bump

Now, Nathan as Mr. Tickle

Lastly, both of them together

Both of them were very excited and I am sure they had lots of fun seeing all their friends dressed up as well.

I shall be watching some of the happenings on t.v. tonight and making my donation, small though it might be. Every penny counts.

  4. I had forgotten about Mr. Bump, Mr. Tickle and their assorted friends. Cybil had several of the books with audio tapes. The boys look cute in their costumes. What a marvelous way to involve kids in giving.
