I’m fundraising for Comic Relief – join me!

Jane Frankland fund raising for comic relief

When you’re an entrepreneur you’ve got your eye on business and it’s easy to get caught up in chasing revenue and maximising profits. Today though, I’m urging you to think about transforming the lives of people in the UK and across Africa, through the work of Comic Relief. I’m asking you to Give em your bloomin wonga!

It’s been 25 years since Red Nose Day first burst onto our screens and this year, once again, the UK nation is gearing up to put on their Noses, pull out all the stops, and get fundraising.

Whether it’s at work, at school or at home, the money raised is used to transform the lives of countless people, both in the UK (where I’m from) and across Africa.

So, this year I’m doing as I’ve always done each year on Red Nose Day – donating and raising money for comic relief.  So, come on join me and help make a difference in the world.

Comic Relief funny for money

Tonight, from 7pm, on BBC One, it’s the big one: the night of Red Nose Day TV. Full of sketches and general hilarity, make sure you don’t miss out. If you’re a fan of Call the Midwife, here’s how they transformed it….

A just world free from poverty

Comic Relief works tirelessly to support some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and around the world as we strive towards a just world free from poverty.

Their aim is to bring about real and lasting change by tackling the root causes of poverty and social injustice, rather than simply treating the symptoms. After all these years, the one thing we know is that when you give people the chance to live their lives with dignity, they invariably grab it with both hands.

So, to drive this change, Comic Relief awards grants to incredible projects on the ground that work to give people a leg up, not a hand out. They also go beyond giving grants and use their brand and influence to do all sorts of other work that moves us closer to our ambition.

Take action now

When you make a donation, you really are about to do something very special. Whatever you give will help to make a real difference to people, here in the UK and across Africa, who are living unimaginably tough lives. All you need to do is to donate now.

Thank you in advance. With love and gratitude – as always,
