Primary school pupils had a wheely good time on Friday as they raised money for Red Nose Day.

It wasn’t only students that got dressed up last week as youngsters at Gearies Primary School decorated their bikes in honour of raising money for charity.

The pupils at the school got into the spirit of the day as they attached red noses and streamers to the handlebars of their trusty trikes.

Bob Drew, headteacher at the school in Waremead Road, Gants Hill, said the sun shone brightly as students took advantage of the opportunity to dress up their bikes.

He said: “We wanted to add a bit of spice to the day and do something different so we asked the pupils to bring their bikes in.

“We’re encouraging them to use non car means of travel and this tied in perfectly.

“On the day, the children dressed up in red and Sainbury’s very kindly donated 100 red noses and a prize for the overall best bike.

“We had four times the amount of bikes we normally have so that was fantastic.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
