IDEA 1

Dance the donations in

Dust off the glitter ball and prepare to dance the night away at a school disco or danceathon. Sell tickets or get sponsored and set up a snack stall on the side to keep everyone going (and the money rolling in).

IDEA 2

Dress up (or down)

Join schools across the UK on Friday 15 March and ask everyone to pay a small fee to go non-uniform for the day. To really get in the Red Nose Day spirit, dig out your reddest t-shirt, hat or silly wig and accessorise with deeley boppers.

IDEA 4

Splat the teacher

Water, sponges, some medieval stocks… I think you can see where this is going. Name your price and prepare to get wet, wet, wet. Bring in the big names to really up the ante – we’d definitely pay extra to splat the headteacher.

Put on a show
