When I was a teacher, one of the events we used to look forward to as a school was Red Nose Day! We always had a lot of fun, wore red or dyed our hair red, raised money and learned something about other’s needs as well….I can’t quite remember if we took part in the first one, but I was definitely teaching then. Below are details of 3 special ladies who are flying out to Ghana tonight and who will be sending back postcards for us to share with you.
“The first ever Red Nose Day took place on Feb 5th 1988. This year marks the 25th anniversary of this inaugural event and to mark the occasion, Comic Relief would like to celebrate the progress of Africa and the difference the money raised by the public has made, both in Africa and here in the UK. Annie from Mammasaurus, Tanya from Mummy Barrow and Penny from Alexander Residence are visiting four projects in Ghana on 4th and 5th February to see for themselves the difference Red Nose Day money has been making. They are tweeting and blogging live during their two day visit so people can follow their progress. HOW CAN YOU BE PART OF #TEAMHONK? We would love some help to make Comic Relief’s 25th anniversary celebration go with a BANG! Chances are your donations from the last 25 years has helped to fund some of the work we will be seeing. “
