What is Comic Relief

Comic Relief is a UK charity which aims to create a just world, free from poverty – where everyone is safe, healthy, educated and empowered. Since 1985, Comic Relief has raised over £1 billion. That money has helped, and is helping, people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world.

To give through Radio 4:

  • Freephone 0800 404 8144
  • Fill out the online donation form
  • Freepost BBC Radio 4 Appeal. (That’s the whole address. Please do not write anything else on the front of the envelope). Mark the back of the envelope ‘Red Nose Day 2017’.
  • Cheques should be made payable to ‘Red Nose Day 2017’.

Comic Relief’s 2017 televised annual fundraiser took place on Friday 24th March, broadcasting live on BBC One from Building Six.

Comedians Sir Lenny Henry, Miranda Hart, Jonathan Ross and French and Saunders presented a night of live comedy, sketches, music moments, and films. And most importantly encourage you to donate as much or as little as you are able.

David Tennant is no stranger to Comic Relief with presenting and appeal duties over the years including the famous kiss with Davina McCall, the hilariously funny sketch with Catherine Tate and the heartbreaking appeal video from Uganda in 2013.
