At HTC Health we’re very keen on getting involved in worthy initiatives, especially if they bring a bit of laughter to our office. So again this year, with our red noses on, we joined the rest of the UK in celebrating Red Nose Day and fundraising for Comic Relief.
The last Red Nose Day, back in 2015, raised an amazing total of £99,418,831. In fact, to date, Red Nose Day has raised more than £800 million. Making it one of the biggest events on the charity calendar. We could not pass that opportunity to get involved!
Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money at home, school and work. Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the world. They fund more than 2,000 projects, throughout the UK, addressing a range of issues, from homelessness and mental health to dementia and vulnerable young people. Across Africa, their programs tackle issues such as immunisation, malaria, education, maternal health and many others.
Fundraising for Red Nose Day is a really easy way to support a range of life-changing projects. So if you haven’t chipped in yet, put your red nose on and get involved! #RedNoseDay
