The Red Nose Day fun has started already at a Sheffield car showroom - where workers are planning to series of events over the next six weeks in an attempt to help raise £1 million for Comic Relief.

Staff from Burrows Toyota Sheffield, Penistone Road, are part of a Toyota-wide effort to raise the sum in time for Red Nose Day on Friday, March 13.

They have arranged a number of challenges, including static-cycling events and selling official red noses for cars for a minimum donation of £5.

The branch is the city’s only stockist of red noses for cars.

Manager Glyn Holmes said: “We’re excited about the fun things we have planned.”
