While everyone enjoys the hugely successful biennial Red Nose Day TV fundraisers, it's important to remember that the organisers, Comic Relief continue to support people in need every day.
Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK, with a vision of a just world, free from poverty. Along with sister organisation Sport Relief they aim to give help to organisations and projects for people in need both in the UK and abroad. The televised Red Nose Day and Sport Relief marathons are supported by comedians, actors, TV personalities and athletes, and David Tennant has visited Africa twice to film appeal footage for the shows.
Comic Relief say, “We work tirelessly all year round to help make our vision a reality. And in the years since we started out in 1985, with the support of some remarkable people, we’ve achieved amazing things and raised over £950 million.”
