Pupils take part in cross country walk for Red Nose Day 2013.

There were red jumpers, red hair, red noses and red faces as the children of Upottery Primary School showed their support for Comic Relief.

To mark the occasion the children took part in a 1.5mile cross country walk of the village.

There was plenty of laughter and sights along the way, including, snowdrops, daffodils and cow pats to keep them all amused.

At break time the school hall was filled with red as pupils nought and sold some delicious cakes.

More than £250 was raised on the day from proceeds from a non-uniform day, the walk and donations from the cakes sold.

An additional £80 was raised for Oxfam.
