Lenny Henry contributes to this insightful film examining how primary schools benefit from engaging with non-governmental organisations and national appeals such as Comic Relief.
The programme includes two school case studies revealing the enduring legacies felt by pupils and staff of participating in Comic Relief.
Staff and pupils at Leigh Primary School near Manchester explain how they have developed empathy with the outside world, engaged with big global issues and even taken their views to Downing Street.
At Bowes Primary School in North London the staff and pupils reveal how they put on a huge Red Nose Day event at their school, raising its profile in the local community and bring together the staff, pupils and parents to put on the event.
