Get Your Noses at the Ready!

Your Time to Shine for Red Nose Day 2011

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2011) - Red Nose Day is back in March and promises to be a day like no other. In homes, schools and offices across the land, the nation will come together to have a laugh and raise a huge amount of money to change people's lives across the UK and Africa.

From shaving heads and holding cake sales to downing pints of baked beans, everyone pulls out all the stops to fundraise and make the world of difference to those in need. A host of famous faces have already pledged their support including Lenny Henry, Emma Bunton, Alexandra Burke, Michael McIntyre and Denise van Outen. The whole thing will culminate in a night of wall to wall comedy on BBC ONE on Friday 18th March – a side-splitting extravaganza you really don't want to miss! 

To get ready for the big night, make sure you buy something funny for money by choosing from the brilliant range of Red Nose Day merchandise. With proceeds helping to change people's lives across the UK and Africa there's no better reason to hit the shops and dig deep.

NOTES TO EDITORS

  • Red Nose Day 2011 is heading your way on Friday 18th March when the great British public will once again be asked to Do Something Funny for Money.
  • By raising cash this Red Nose Day, you're helping to change lives forever. That's because Comic Relief spends all the money raised by the public to give extremely vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa a helping hand to turn their lives around.
  • Comic Relief was launched on Christmas Day in 1985, live on BBC One. At that time, a devastating famine was crippling Ethiopia and something had to be done. That something was Comic Relief. The idea was simple – Comic Relief would make the public laugh while they raised money to help people in desperate need. Before too long, Red Nose Day was created and the first ever event in 1988 raised a staggering £15m. To date, twelve Red Nose Days have raised more than £500m. That money has helped, and is helping, to support people and communities in dire need both in the UK and Africa.
