Comic Relief & Red Nose Day at TK Maxx

Where the money from your purchase goes

Money raised through the sale of our Red Nose Day range, and customer and associate fundraising, provides vital funds for Comic Relief to help vulnerable children and young people in the UK and around the world.

  • £1 could get four meals to vulnerable children and families in the UK.
  • £2 could buy a warm blanket for a child living in a refugee camp in Serbia.
  • £4 could provide four days of childcare to help a young mum in Kenya get support, helping her with social and life skills, and giving vital health information.
  • £7 could provide a young homeless person in the UK with essential toiletries.

Money raised by TK Maxx from RND 2019 has also gone to fund organisations overseas such as Grassroot Soccer Zambia. In partnership with Strong Minds, the project pilots an integrated, youth-friendly programme of support to young people living with HIV.

Fairtrade cotton chari-tees supporting Ugandan farmers

The Fairtrade cotton in our Comic Relief T-shirts was grown by farmers in Uganda, supported by TK Maxx’s Sustainable Trade Programme which empowers cotton farmers to increase their income so they can send their children to school and improve their life chances. The cotton was first used for the Red Nose Day T-shirts in the 2015 campaign and we're delighted to continue to use the cotton for our T-shirts in the 2021 campaign.
