DOING something funny for money was the order of the day as people in the Royston area took part in Comic Relief.
At Barley School, pupils donned fancy dress outfits and were taught to line dance, while they started the day with a special Red Nose breakfast.
Headteacher Julie Price said: "The children have already talked about the barriers that stop children in Africa from going to school, and have chosen to help children who don't live at home.
"By having fun on Red Nose Day they will be raising money to help these children who are much less fortunate than themselves.

"Children came to school early and started the day hungry like so many African children who live in poverty.
"Luckily for them, a special Red Nose breakfast was waiting, provided by the staff," she said.

There was also plenty of dancing at St Mary's School in Royston, as pupils performed a whole school dance to a mixture of songs, including Thriller and Dancing Queen.
Children dressed in Spiderman masks and a variety of hats, while two of the school's teachers serenaded the children using inflatable guitars.
Meanwhile, at the Mother Goose Pre-School in Wimpole, children made donations in exchange for having their noses painted red.
