Hackney goes Comic Relief crazy - see photos of our red nosed fundraisers
Photo gallery - Fundraisers were funny for money as Hackney went Comic Relief crazy on Friday (March 18).
From custard pies to pyjama parties and silly outfits - residents big and small donned their red noses for this year’s record breaking celebrations.
Among those taking part were tots from Little Angels’ Schoolhouse who competed in a sponsored toddle in Shoreditch Park.
Teachers wore pants on their heads at St Thomas Abney Primary School in Fairholt Road, Stoke Newington.
Meanwhile pupils looked like they had just got out of bed at Grazebrook Primary School in Lordship Road, Stamford Hill.
