Happy Days actor and author Henry Winkler brought loads of laughter to Henleaze Junior School in Bristol on Friday as part of the First News Crazy Hair Dare, in support of Red Nose Day.
He and Nicky Cox, the editor of First News – the UK’s only newspaper for young people – made a special visit to Henleaze Junior School to thank them for their fund-raising efforts for Comic Relief. First News has been encouraging schools and children all across the country to do crazy things with their hair in support of Red Nose Day.
As well as sporting gravity-defying hair dos, the school is raising money with a special topsy-turvey day, with children attending school in their pyjamas, breakfast served at lunchtime and teachers sitting at desks to learn. Winkler began the day by reading bedtime stories at the school assembly.
Henleaze Junior School in Park Grove has been a consistent supporter of Comic Relief, and was one of the top 50 fundraising schools in the UK for the previous Red Nose Day.
All the money raised on Red Nose Day will help transform the lives of poor and vulnerable people here in the UK and in Africa. For further information and fantastic fundraising tips, visit www.rednoseday.com.
