The office girls are all in red today to raise awareness of Red Nose Day 2011 and the Chris Moyles Team have broken the record for the longest ever radio show (they’ve been on air for over 50hrs as I type this and have raised over £1.8M for Comic Relief! You can see how the Nation have been raising money on the Red Nose Day Official Facebook Page.
Comic Relief is a charity founded in 1988 by Richard Curtis and Alexander Mendis in response to the famine in Africa and the charity now funds a range of projects both in Africa and in the United Kingdom with every single pound going straight towards supporting these projects (corporate sponsors cover overheads and staff costs). Since it’s creation, Comic Relief has raised over £650 million.
Here’s a few piccies of us today, and we wish everyone the best of luck in their sponsored RND events!
