Red Nose Day 2017: Ideas and advice

This year, Red Nose Day takes place on Friday, March 24. With thousands of schools planning to take part, Anna Budzynska offers a range of activity and fundraising ideas as well as some general advice

As a former geography teacher who now works for the Schools and Youth Team at Comic Relief, I have experienced fundraising from both sides.

I remember all too well the feelings aroused in school by a “big event” like Red Nose Day: excitement, community spirit, hilarity and, ultimately, a sense of achievement.

My own fundraising experience as a teacher was fairly standard, comprising non-uniform days, bake sales and the odd “sponge your teacher”.

However, in my role at Comic Relief, I have been lucky enough to get an overview of some of the more original and inspirational ways that secondary schools around the country make the most of Red Nose Day – with incredible results for all concerned.
