IT'S Red Nose Day again today and children at the Hillbillies Playgroup, in Upton, are among hundreds in the Malvern area doing their bit for Comic Relief.

Some were saying "Pants to Poverty" by wearing pants outside their clothes, while others raised money more soberly, with concerts, sales and non-uniform days.

The Hillbillies, who meet every weekday at the Hill Centre in Upton, were invited to wear red and make a 50p donation to Comic Relief.

"It's gone really well. Parents have put every effort into it and those who didn't take part still donated money," said one of the organisers, Sarah Loader.
