Comic Relief, Red Nose Day and Oxfam


Red Noses in Oxfam shops

Red Nose Day is back on Friday 13 March. Oxfam shops have sold Red Noses to support Comic Relief right from the beginning, in 1985.

Oxfam is one of the many charities to receive grants from Comic Relief, to support some of our projects in Africa. So, like in all the very best partnerships, we help one another in ways that really count.

There are nine different Red Noses to be found in special surprise bags. You might be lucky enough to find one of our prize-winning Golden Noses*. Which will you get?

Red Noses are £1 each, with at least 60p going to Comic Relief. Pin Badges, Wristbands and Trolley Tokens are also on sale, all at your local Oxfam shop.

An Oxfam project funded by Comic Relief

In 2012, 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 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!
