On the 19th March, Bloxwich Academy held a Red Nose Day to support Comic Relief Day. This Year it felt more important than ever to have some fun and raise money to support people who are living incredibly tough lives. As Sir Lenny Henry comments, “We need the power of funny to turn laughs into lasting change.” On the day staff and pupils wore something red and donated money to the charity. Sixth Form pupils sold doughnuts in the canteen at break time to raise money for as well.

Donations collected for Red Nose Day help tackle important issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse and mental health stigma, all of which have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The money raised goes towards supporting amazing organisations across the UK and around the world.

Our support is urgently needed across key areas:

  • Food Banks
  • NHS charities
  • Mind – Mental Health
  • Families and Women charities
  • Homeless
  • Crisis
  • Age UK

We managed to raise over £232.21 , a big thank you to everyone who helped and supported the day’s events.

Well done all.
