Events are taking place across Lowestoft and Waveney today to raise funds for Comic Relief.
Pupils at Red Oak Primary School in Kirkley have paid 50p to wear red today while youngsters at Gunton Primary Academy have begun the day by singing the Red Nose song in morning assembly.
Children at Ladybird Day Care in Kirkley and Somerleyton Primary School are also wearing red to raise funds for charity.
Grove Primary School headteacher David Baker will perhaps make the biggest sacrifice of the day when he is 'gunged' by pupils.
The school has sold raffle tickets for the chance to tip buckets of water, wallpaper paste and beans over Mr Baker's head at the end of the school day.
