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.
The money you raise this Red Nose Day is spent by Comic Relief to transform lives - here are just a few of the ways your contribution could help.
Wherever you live in the UK, the chances are you’re within 30 miles of a Comic Relief-funded project.
£8 could help to run a soup kitchen for one night in the UK, providing warm meals for up to 40 homeless people.
£2.50 could pay for a mosquito net to protect a child in Uganda from contracting life-threatening malaria.
£5 could provide a child living on the streets of
South Africa with a meal and a safe place to
sleep for a night.
£3 could provide a hot meal for a vulnerable young person in the UK living in extreme poverty.
£4 could provide exercise books for four children living
on the streets in Ghana, so they have the tools they need
to go to school and start to build a better future.
£65 could provide mental health training for a teacher or youth worker, so they are better equipped to respond to a young person who is self-harming.
£30 could buy a beehive for a new beekeeper in Ghana, helping them to produce honey safely, increase their income and lift their family out of poverty.
£25 could pay for a group of disadvantaged young people from a deprived area in the UK to take part in a sport session, keeping them safe and off the streets.
£1000 could buy water tanks for two families living in poverty in South Africa, allowing them to grow vegetables that they can eat and also sell on as an additional source of income.
