The Countdown To Red Nose Day 2013 Starts Here

The date of next years's Red Nose Day has been revealed as Friday 15th March 2013.

The huge fundraising event takes place every other year, alternating with Sport Relief, and a host of celebrities, including David Tennant, can always be counted on to go that extra mile to help persuade us to give to the good causes supported by the charity.

The countdown has begun

After the great success of Red Nose Day 2011, plans are already underway for the next Red Nose Day campaign which will be taking place on Friday 15th March.
Last time, the campaign included some truly memorable moments including The Inbetweeners’ Rude Road Trip (which saw the four lads from the show visit over fifty rude street names in fifty hours), The BT Red Nose Desert Trek (when a team of brave celebrities got hot under the collar trekking across a baking desert in Kenya), and TV highlights such as Let’s Dance for Comic Relief and Famous, Rich and In The Slums which followed four celebrities as they left all their home comforts behind to embrace life in one of Africa’s largest and most impoverished slums.
In total, the fundraising campaign raised a record-breaking £106,436,227 thanks largely to the incredible generosity and support from the Great British public.
That cash has been hard at work ever since transforming lives across Africa and at home in the UK.
One example of the way in which money raised for Comic Relief makes a difference can be seen in the mid-western regions of Uganda where the charity has helped to distribute over 600,000 mosquito nets. Since families have received these nets, there has been a 26% drop in the number of children dying from malaria in these areas.
Despite making a massive difference to many people’s lives at home and overseas, there’s still much more to be done. That’s why Red Nose Day 2013 is all set to be bigger and better than ever before, with many celebrity shenanigans planned, brilliant TV to keep the nation entertained and huge fundraising feats in workplaces and schools across the land.
Be a part of it – put Friday 15th March in your diary now and plan how you’re going to do something funny for money!
