Comic Relief Comes to the Proact

13 March 2015

Getting into the spirit of Red Nose Day, Chesterfield players and supporters have been making their faces funny for money, all in aid of Comic Relief.

All those around the club came across to The HUB to don a squidgy red nose or some funky glasses and have their picture taken by club photographer Tina Jenner.

Tina, who came up with the idea, talked about the fun she'd had during the day, with plenty Spireites players joining in with the fun.

"The theme this year is to make your face funny for money so I just thought it was the perfect opportunity," she said. "I saw the theme and I thought it would be good to get the lads involved from the team and then by doing it at The HUB we could get the Community Trust involved as well.

"The funny faces have not been too bad: Tommy Lee, Ritchie Humphreys, Jay O'Shea and Tendayi [Darikwa] have been over today and we've had some of the public come in as well, which has been really good fun.

"The whole point of Red Nose Day is to be daft and do daft things. I'm not really one for baked beans in a bath so I'm trying to use my skills to help people along the way a little bit."

Rachel Booth, for the Community Trust, took part in the shenanigans herself and made sure that even mascot Chester the Field Mouse made his funniest face for the occasion. 

She said: "We've had Chesterfield FC Community Trust, working alongside Tina Jenner Photography and Chesterfield Football Club to do our first ever Red Nose Day extravaganza.

"We had a day where members of the public, staff and even some players were invited to come along and have their photograph taken, all for a donation to Comic Relief - it's been great fun.

"Even Chester joined in! For the rest of the week we're fundraising for Comic Relief, we've got a special deal in The HUB where you can buy a red nose bun or a red nose cookie with a tea or a coffee and some of the money will go to Comic Relief."

Supporters who had their photos taken will soon receive their photos by email, with the funniest faces joining the first team squad in a special poster to celebrate the day.
