Comic Relief red nose day

The charity Comic Relief was founded in 1985 by comedian Lenny Henry and scriptwriter Richard Curtis after the success of Live Aid. One of the highlights of the charitys work is Red Nose Day. Red Nose Day is held in March every two years to raise money for projects both here and around the world. Since 2002 Red Nose Day has alternated with Sport Relief.

The very first Red Nose Day was held in 1988 in which 150 comedians and celebrities got involved. That first Red Nose day back in 1988 attracted 30 million viewers and raised £15 million pounds. It has been a part of popular culture ever since.

All money raised on Red Nose Day goes towards projects both here in the UK and around the world. The charity funds a wide variety of projects ranging from building health centres to tackling poverty in third world countries. Since the charity started over £1 billion pounds has been raised.
