What do your donations do?
Comic Relief donations go straight to the cause with 100% going to the rightful recipients. The donations made are used to support vulnerable people and communities in the UK and Internationally. Their vision is to create a poverty-free world by supporting amazing organisations doing amazing things. Our donations have contributed to over £1 billion for Comic Relief since 1985 and are proving to be successful as more and more vulnerable people are stepping out of the realms of poverty and creating a better future for themselves. The money raised is donated towards supporting causes with proven solutions and towards those creating new ones.
No matter what you are doing this Friday any donations towards Comic Relief in any way are gratefully received and go a long way towards making a difference.
