Comic Relief, Red Nose Day and Oxfam


Red Noses in Oxfam shops

It's big, it's red, it's ever-so-slightly-ridiculous and it's back on Friday 24th March. Red Nose Day is all about your power to make the world a better place, simply by having a great time.

Oxfam shops have sold Red Noses to support Comic Relief right from the very beginning, since 1988. Oxfam is one of the many charities to receive grants from Comic Relief, to support some of our projects in Africa.

This Red Nose Day we have got ten new Red Noses in special surprise bags. Well nine red ones and an Ultra Rare Silver one! You have got a 1 in 900 chance of finding Frankinose and, if you do, look out for the code on his feet to unlock special content on the Red Noses online Comic Adventure.

Each Nose costs £1, with at least 60p going to Comic Relief. Glow-in-the-dark Wristbands, Pin Badges and Sparkle Badges are also on sale in select shops.

An Oxfam project funded by Comic Relief

Comic Relief awarded Oxfam £2.2m to fund a programme in Ethiopia which has allowed us to provide training and equipment to honey farmers, particularly women. With our support, honey production is already significantly increasing which means a greater income for the families, so they can become self-sufficient.

Comic Relief's five year grant, which will complete in 2017, will enable Oxfam to continue to help women farmers improve the quality and quantity of the honey produced, gain access to export markets and improve their families' incomes.

Thank you Comic Relief!
