Bonn. Helping through comedy: IBIS pupils will be donning red noses again this year to raise funds for charities around the world.

If you are anywhere near the Independent Bonn International School (IBIS) in Heiderhof on Friday 24 March, you are likely to spot lots of people wearing very large red noses. The school is taking part in Red Nose Day for the second time and is hoping to raise even more money for good causes around the world than it did two years ago.

Red Nose Day was launched in the UK in 1988 as a huge nationwide fundraising event. Over the intervening years, it has become something of an institution, with people across the country coming together every two years to do something funny for money either at home, in school or at work. The money raised is then distributed to charities. The concept has also spread to other countries, including Germany.

At IBIS, a special Red Nose Committee has been busy co-ordinating events. Students will be able to buy red noses all this week and on Friday there will be Red Nose Alerts to check everyone is wearing their nose. Other events being organised include a Red Nose Day bake-off event, a parents’ musical sweepstake, food sales, craft afternoons, a quiz and children’s cinema.
