Videos and pictures: Comic Relief Red Nose Day 2013 across Hull and East Yorkshire
FUNDRAISERS across Hull and the East Riding proudly put on their red noses and did something funny for money.
Schoolchildren, work colleagues and friends thought up bonkers but brilliant ways to support Comic Relief and pull in the pounds.
The annual campaign, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, helps raise funds for worthy causes here in East Yorkshire, across the UK and in Africa.
Staff at Specsavers in Hessle set their sights on a big money target for Red Nose Day and dressed up in outrageous costumes to put their baking skills to the test.

Store director Kay Weaver said: "We wanted to get in the spirit of one of the biggest nationwide fundraising events."
Chants Vets in Chanterlands Avenue also held an animal fun day with their own take on a bush tucker trial, while children at Busy Bees Nursery in Brough created a talent and fashion show.
Manager Susan Barr said: "We love being involved with Red Nose Day and coming up with interesting ways to support our chosen charities.
"We hope the funds we have raised help to make a little bit of a difference to those who need it most."
Pupils at Pearson Primary School got their own back on teachers for dishing out homework by throwing pies at them, while children at Westside Day Nursery in Bilton Grange created a giant red nose in their front garden.
Headteacher Kate Hindson said: "We have been doing it over two days in the school hall, giving more children a chance to pie a teacher.
"They are very enthusiastic and like making a mess, but they also realise it's for a very important cause."
There are still plenty of fundraising events to take place this weekend, including a 20-mile walk from the Humber Bridge Park to Beverley Minster.
Staff of the Hull City Council's school admissions and education welfare teams will have their blister patches at the ready.
They are hoping to hit the £1,000 mark and have already raised more than £800.
Sue Yardley, who organised the walk, said: "I'm so excited, it's going to be great fun.
"The fact that we have smashed our original target of £600 has really spurred us on and we are desperate to make £1,000."
The Beverley 20 was devised by Glen Hood, of the Ramblers Association, the walkers will follow the Humber then head across the Wolds through Risby and by the Skidby Mill before finishing at the minster.
