Frequently Asked Questions

What is Red Nose Day and how did it begin?

Show answer

Comic Relief, the charity behind Red Nose Day, was launched on Christmas Day in 1985 by movie writer/director Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral) with a live broadcast from a refugee camp in Sudan. It was created out of the firm belief that the power of mass media and high-profile celebrities can raise awareness on issues of poverty and save millions of lives.

How does the Red Nose Day fund work?

Show answer

Comic Relief is the charity behind the Red Nose Day Fund and all money raised goes to the Red Nose Day Fund. The Red Nose Day Fund provides grants annually to charities who demonstrate they are doing work in the US and overseas to help end child poverty.
