OUCH: Festival Housing staff Lynne Rogers and Lara Latcham took part in various activities for Comic Relief including very painful leg waxes as demonstrated here by Phil Barnfield.
PEOPLE across the area have been doing something funny for money for Comic Relief.
Staff from Malvern-based Festival Housing sold cakes and waxed legs to raise £132.
Children from The Grove Primary, in Pickersleigh Grove, also looked the part, proudly wearing their red noses to school to raise money for the cause.
Meanwhile, a group of yongsters got to together to organise a cake sale in Wellington Heath, near Ledbury.
Katherine Allsopp, aged 12, decided she wanted to do something for the cause.
She organised the sale with cakes baked by her friends and donated by villagers.
More than 50 people came to event and helped raise a whopping £383.84.
Meanwhile, more than 100 youngsters from Sway Dance dance school in Upton, took part in an energetic fundraiser and raised more than £85 for the cause. Their event had a “glitter and glams”
theme and the children were asked to put on their fanciest clothes and party dresses to take part in the dance-athon.
Sway Dance meets every week and offers its members the chance to try everything from street dance and hip hop to ballet, tap-dancing and cheerleading.
Instructor Ida Freeman said: “We try and do something for Comic Relief every year but this time we really wanted to bring the big guns out and do something different.”
e Comic Relief raised more than £75 million this year, the highest-ever total.
