We asked agencies to let us know what you are doing to raise money for Comic Relief and were overwhelmed by your responses: from bake sales and wearing your pajamas in work to, erm, shooting each other in the bottom with paintballs (we won't ask who came up with that idea).

Here we take a look at our top ten. Keep sending your pics to until 3pm, and we'll put them all on our Facebook page.

If these pics don't make you fancy a cake at lunchtime, nothing will...
