COMIC Relief 2015 saw hundreds of funny faces created as just some of the comedy capers that schools and businesses in North Somerset got up to as part of the national fundraising drive.

Staff at Morrisons in Clevedon raised £338 by bathing in a tub full of tomato soup while members of Specsavers in Nailsea held a book sale and a guess the number of contact lenses in a jar competition.

Many school students got to dress in mufti, wear red and paint their faces but a few held special events, such as Gordano School in Portishead which created a giant red nose out of paper donated by PACE, and Nailsea School which raised £1,400 by holding a bake sale among other things.

In Backwell, West Leigh Infant School students raised more than £150 by decorating biscuits while even the dog got involved with the dressing up at Flax Bourton Primary School.

More than £78million was raised nationally for Comic Relief this year - the highest total in its 30-year history.
