Staff and students at Carter Community School skipped, danced, hula-hooped and even kept quiet to raise over £1000 for Red Nose Day.
Students from across all year groups took part in a variety of activities to help boost the coffers of the national charity, including cake sales, face painting, a sponsored skipathon, hulahoopathon, danceathon, singathon and the obligatory raffle. Players from AFC Bournemouth also joined in the fun to take part in a goal scoring contest.
But the greatest challenge came with the sponsored silence, with students asked to remain tight lipped to earn their money.
Commented Carter Community School’s Acting Principal Sam Davidson:
“It was a fantastic and fun filled day, but with a very serious outcome - raising funds to help those less fortunate than ourselves. A big 'well done' to all this who took part."
