They certainly made their faces funny for money in aid of Comic Relief in South Holland.

Some also made themselves sweaty and smelly for the charitable cause – and a lot chose to dress down, or dress up in fancy costume.

At Peele Community College at Long Sutton students dressed up, and down, for the day, and staff members also got involved.

Head of Darwin House James Harrison held a draw for students to win the chance to decorate his face while cover supervisor Joe Roulstone came to school with half a head and beard shaved.

They raised a total of £692.42.

Fitness instructor at Definitions Health & Fitness Gym in Spalding Jamie Forman took a tougher approach. He ran the eight or so miles from Holbeach to work and, after a quick cup of tea, set about hoisting 60kg weights 600 times on the bench press.

A staff member at the family-run gym said: “The only thing he came out with was a cold from his run, so he didn’t do too bad. He was a bit sweaty and smelly and out of breath when he arrived, but once he’d had a cup of tea he was fine.”

Gym members and staff sponsored Jamie’s efforts, raising over £300, with money still coming in.

Gedney Drove End Primary School children raised over £100 for Comic Relief.

The children wore red and sported red noses and the choir sang for the school.

A member of staff said: “The children were wearing red and, as you can see from the photograph, some very strange ways of wearing their clothes!”
