ERMYSTED'S schoolboy Oscar Jackson joined legions of fundraisers last week taking part in the BBC's Comic Relief Red Nose Day and raised £160 by climbing one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

Oscar, 12, joined his mum, Jo, and friends on their climb of Penyghent and despite mist and rain, thoroughly enjoyed it. His school had held a non-uniform day and along with watching Comic Relief on the television, he had been inspired to do the walk and raise money for charity.

Red Nose Day saw more than £40 million raised for Comic Relief this year. People took parts in all sorts of events and fun challenges to raise money for children facing poverty in the UK and around the world. It was also the last time the live television show was hosted by Sir Lenny Henry, who was one of the first ever presenters for Comic Relief, after he helped to create the charity 39 years ago.
