Home Bakes were on sale in Church Street on Red Nose Day. Staff members Jess Clements, Tasha Manley and Emma Harwood of Williamsons solicitors, were happy to serve customers with cakes at their fundraising stall, wearing official red noses as the company took part in the Big Red Nose Day Bake Sale. A spokesperson for Williamsons said: “Our Winter colds may be gone but our red noses are making a triumphant return.”
Across the road in Crewkerne, bank tellers weren’t sporting the colourful nose adornments but the walls, counters and doors in the NatWest bank were covered in red noses, as staff members Amy Rendell and Jo Chubb invited customers to guess how many were displayed in the bank. Other businesses in the town displayed red nose balloons outside of their premises as collections were welcomed for Comic Relief.
Red Nose Day is a UK wide fundraising event, organised by Comic Relief, every two years. Money raised goes to a number of important causes in the UK and worldwide. This year, the main focus of the charity appeal is to raise awareness of domestic violence within the United Kingdom and on Malaria awareness in Africa.
