red nose day

“Comic Relief” fundraising had raised a record £74.3 million (according to the BBC website and other media reports) by the end of Friday 19th March (Red Nose Day 2011). As you know, this powerful campaign raises money for poor and vulnerable people across the UK and Africa.

The Chief Executive of Comic Relief, Kevin Cahill, said that they were in awe of the generosity of the British public.

“At a time when global problems are dominating the headlines and people are struggling at home, the results are quite remarkable” he said.
