All about Red Nose Day
TK Maxx and Comic Relief
Red Nose Day is back at TK Maxx on Friday 24th March, and it's all about your power to make the world a better place. From workplace bake sales and fancy-dress fundraising in schools, to danceathons, put on a t-shirt and make your laugh matter by doing whatever you enjoy to raise life-changing cash.
It all culminates in a massive night of comedy and entertainment, live on the BBC, with Comic Relief using the money to support projects and help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and across Africa.
Let's make 2017 count
Red Nose Day 2015 raised an amazing total of £99,418,831. In fact, to date, Red Nose Day has raised more than £800 million. Making it one of the biggest events on the charity calendar.
This year, you can join in by buying Red Nose Day T-shirts and homeware, raising or donating cash - it's all helping to change lives.
Discover the whole Red Nose Day collection created and photographed by fashion photographer Rankin. The limited edition range includes unisex, women's, men's and children's t-shirts and homeware. These t-shirts have been manufactured in Africa using Fairtrade cotton sourced from credited co-operatives in Uganda which means fairer prices for the farmers.
Where The Money Goes
Since 1985, Comic Relief, has raised money to help poor and vulnerable people living incredibly tough lives both in the UK and across Africa.
By raising (or donating) cash this Red Nose Day, you're helping to change lives. Of the money you raise for Red Nose Day, 40% will go towards supporting Comic Relief projects here in the UK and 60% towards projects in Africa. Here are just a few ways your contribution could help.
In the UK, £1 could enable a mental health charity to answer a call from an isolated young person with mental health issues who desperately needs someone to talk to.
£3 could pay for a counselling session for a child devastated by the loss of their parents to Ebola in Sierra Leone.
Renowned British photographer, Rankin has shot some of the world's most famous faces, from Kate Moss and David Bowie to James Bond and the Queen. And now, Rankin has created nine different quirky animal design t-shirts and homeware for our Red Nose Day campaign. At least £5 from the sale of these adult T-shirts and at least £2.50 from the kids' t-shirts will go to Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and across Africa. Get yours online today and in store from 13th February.
