In pictures: Red Nose Day in Lincoln

Plenty of businesses, schools and individuals in Lincoln donned their red noses and best red-themed outfits in aid of Red Nose Day on Friday.

Red Nose Day is a charity event by Comic Relief for those in need across the UK and Africa. As well as wearing a themed red nose, participants are encouraged to do “something funny for money”.

In Lincoln, key figures had a big bake off, while the Drill Hall hosted a variety of music and poetry for the afternoon.

Old Station Nursery put on a host of activities for the children to enjoy, while schools in the city organised their events too.
