Thanks so much for putting Red Nose Day 2017 in your diary.

What is Red Nose Day?

  • Red Nose Day is a fundraising event run by Comic Relief that takes places every two years
  • Comic Relief is a UK charity, which aims to create a just world, free from poverty
  • Last Red Nose Day the UK public raised an astonishing £99.4 million to help people living incredibly tough lives both here in the UK and Africa

We’re taking part in Red Nose Day 2017 because:

  Pupils learn valuable life skills

  • Pupils gain understanding and empathy for others in the world
  • It brings the whole school community together
  • Our school can really make a difference to people’s lives

Did you know…

 £3 could pay for a counselling session for a child who has lost of their parents to Ebola in Sierra Leone

  • In the UK, £10 could help a young person caught up in gang culture to turn their life around with professional mentoring

This year Abbeyfield Primary Academy is raising money for Red Nose Day 2017.  Pupils and staff from each class are going to be holding fundraising activities on Friday 24th March.

The money we raise will help people living really tough lives in the UK and across Africa. E.g., £2.50 could buy a mosquito net to protect a family in Africa. In the UK, £5 could pay for an isolated elderly person with dementia to have dinner at their local support group. On their behalf, thank you.

We will also be using Red Nose Day as a learning opportunity to help our pupils explore the issues facing young children across the world, and how the money we raise can help.

We really appreciate your support and hope that you’ll have fun helping your child raise lots of money for Red Nose Day.
