VIDEO: High Peak folk put the fun into fundraising for Comic Relief

High Peak residents young and old put the fun into fundraising in support of Comic Relief on Friday.

And red certainly proved to be the colour of money as fancy dress and facepaint was all the range during a day of fun events.

Buxton Swimming Club swimmers took the plunge to mark Red Nose Day, with an evening of games, relays and competitions.

Meanwhile, senior members of New Mills Golf Club devoted their usual Friday ‘roll up’ to raising money for charity.

And pupils at Fairfield Endowed Junior School donned red fancy dress to raise over £100.

A variety of events were held at Buxton Community School, one of which saw staff and students take on the challenge of riding 514 miles on two exercise bikes.

Schoolgirls Phoebe Parker and Maisie Mawby organised a cake sale on their street and raised £243. Eight-year-old Phoebe, of Burbage Primary School, and Maisie, who attends St Anne’s Primary School, worked hard baking and decorating cakes, supported by family, friends and neighbours.
