The Dales was awash with red on Friday as charity champs did something funny for money.

The annual Comic Relief appeal saw a host of colourful activities taking place and thousands of pound raised for the good cause.

Red Nose Day highlights included staff and students at Anthony Gell School, in Wirksworth, hosting their own version of television dating show Take Me Out.

Pupils raised over £1,300, by dressing up, selling cakes and jewellery and coming to class in fancy dress.

Children at All Saints Infants also donned an array of fancy dress while youngsters at St Joseph’s Primary in Matlock had fun gunging their head teacher, Paul Scott.

Plenty of others got in on the funny fund-raising including Bakewell school girls Beth Riva and Briony Skidmore who collected money while sitting in a bath of manure and leisure staff at the district council who did a 30 mile walk.
