Red Nose Day!

Today is Red Nose Day! It is the day to do something funny for money. People up and down the country will be taking part in fundraising activities and wearing red noses, raising as much money to help tackle some serious problems. Will you be taking part?

Red Nose Day is a big annual charity event organised by Comic Relief. Red Nose Day started back in 1985, making 2024 its 39th year! The day raises money to keep children safe, healthy and educated. Over the last six years, it has raised more than £250 million to help end child poverty and has positively impacted over 25 million children around the world. The vision of Comic Relief is to live in a just world, free from poverty. They believe those closest to the issues have the best solutions, so they partner with amazing projects and organisations that tackle some of the biggest challenges faced by society today.
