The colourful character popped by Broke Hall Primary School this morning where the children were given this year’s series of noses, and revealed their fundraising activities planned for the big day on Friday, March 24.

The school’s deputy headteacher Ruth Fairs said: “We are going to wear silly socks and we always have a special assembly. We are organising a cake sale the children will hold themselves and activities in the classroom where they learn about children less fortunate than themselves.”
