Stores across the North East have set out to raise more than £20,000 for Comic Relief.
Teams from Northumberland to North Yorkshire are selling jester-themed comedy specs ahead of Red Nose Day on Friday 15th March in a bid to raise the cash.
In addition, bake sales and sponsored events are lined up across the region to further boost the fundraising total.
