Red Nose Day | Friday 13 March 2009
Red Nose Day is, quite simply, a day like no other.
We take some fantastic fundraising in schools, offices and homes across the land, mix it with the nation's favourite celebrities getting up to all kinds of mischief, sprinkle a new Red Nose (or three!) across the entire UK and add a cracking night of comedy on BBC One to make Red Nose Day the phenomenon it is.

Matt Peters from Bracknell sent in the above photo of his daughter Amy wearing her red nose.
And Julie-Ann Sinclair sent in the photo on the right of her extravagantly-dressed son Lewis, and wrote: "Have a giggle at my son Lewis's attempt at doing something funny for money to raise money for Comic Relief. Lewis went to school in this creation this morning."
All this funny business unites the nation in trying to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people
This year, to be part of Red Nose Day 2009, you just need to Do Something Funny for Money!
