Red Nose Day is a fundraising event organised every two years by Comic Relief, with the aim being to put on a Red Nose and fundraise to help make a difference to the lives of thousands of people across the UK and Africa, who are living in poverty and injustice.
In the UK, over 2000 projects are funded, addressing a range of issues, from homelessness to mental health, and vulnerable young people.
In Africa, over 11 million people have been helped since the last Red Nose Day event. With issues such as malaria, education and maternal health being tackled.
