It belongs to comedy actor Peter Serafinowicz, who you might recognise from Shaun of the Dead, Spaced, or as the voice of Darth Maul in Star Wars Espisode 1: The Phantom Menace…
You might have noticed a few red noses around the place lately, signalling the arrival of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day 2009 on Friday 13th March.
The good news is you can now join in the Red Nose Day fun and raise money for Comic Relief through Justgiving, as they’ve recently become one of our registered charities.
Sainsbury’s is giving the fundraising drive an extra boost by working with Justgiving and Comic Relief to bring you this great Red Nose Day website with fundraising stories, Jamie Oliver recipes and a brilliant fundraising ideas generator, so you can find all sorts of ways to ‘Do Something Funny for Money’.
Here’s one exciting (and chilly) fundraising idea from a Justgiving father and son fundraising team, who slept the night in a homemade igloo for Comic Relief this month.
As they say on their Justgiving page: “Martin and Charlie “checked in” at the Red Nose Igloo at 11:30 pm and emerged 08:00 am. Overnight the outside temperature fell to around -5 degrees C. Happily the temperature in the igloo was a balmy -1.5 degrees C.” We’re really impressed with their snowy resourcefulness.
And that’s just one of the amazing fundraising stories we’ve seen so far. In the past week, you’ve helped raise over £15,000 in donations for Comic Relief through Justgiving. It’s a fantastic start and we’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.
