Students at a Suffolk college got arty in the name of charity.

The students and staff at Otley College joined the nations Comic Relief fundraising efforts by creating a large papier-mache nose.

They then put presents inside the comedy nose and people paid to pick out a prize.

Cash was also raised through a disco and staff also hosted a coffee morning.

One of the organisers at the Otley campus, Sarah Brunning, said, “Comic Relief is a fantastic event in the British calendar, as it encourages people from across the country to have fun whilst generating funds for a variety of needy causes both in the UK and abroad.

“It’s very important that we think of others and as a college we are proud to do our bit for this great charity.”

At the college’s Easton campus, students paid to take part in a one mile exercise bike challenge.
