Last Red Nose Day hundreds of Nationwide staff volunteered to man the phone lines and take donations from generous callers. We’re pleased to say they’re doing the same this year. We’ve got 200 phone lines, and over 500 employees will be taking calls from 7pm to midnight. It’s going to be quite an evening!
All the fun has a serious aim of course. Comic Relief’s aim is to create a just world, free from poverty. To date Red Nose Days have raised over £960 million to help inspiring and life-changing work. Smashing the £1 billion mark this time would be a monumental achievement, making a real difference to people in the UK and across Africa.
Thank you to everyone who is taking part in or supporting Red Nose Day again this year!
