Red Nose Day 2017

24th March 2017

Red Nose Day 2017

Red Nose Day arrives once again this March, having already raised over £1 billion to support poor and vulnerable people in the UK and across Africa.  

This Friday 24th March, support the fantastic cause further with a range of exclusive lines and products, donations and more from stores here at Two Rivers.

TK Maxx is the official retailer of the exclusive, limited edition, designer Red Nose Day T-shirts. Their 2017 collection has been created by renowned fashion and portrait photographer Rankin exclusively for Comic Relief, featuring a range of cute and funny animals with attitude, available in men’s, women’s and kids’ sizes.

Each t-shirt has been wholly manufactured in Africa, made with Fairtrade cotton sourced from certified co-operatives in Uganda, meaning a fairer price for the farmers. The full collection available at TK Maxx also includes pyjamas, notebooks, tea towels, aprons and colouring books, on sale in store now.

Specsavers have also joined Comic Relief for some spec-tacular fun, helping to make the national laugh. The opticians have created special red glasses with extra comedy hands – perfect for resting above your Red Nose. The silly specs come in large and small sizes and you can get your hands on a pair for just £2 in store, with the whole £2 going to Comic Relief.

Dine at TGI Friday’s this March and you’ll also be supporting Comic Relief, as when you tuck into selected dishes a donation will be made. Enjoy The Chief Burger with a £2 donation, Strawberry Fields Mocktail with a £1 donation and Strawberry Lemonade Slushie with a 75p donation, helping Comic Relief’s fantastic work.

Waitrose also stock some of the brands which are supporting Comic Relief further, including Maltesers, PG Tips, Babybel & Aquafresh. Find out how purchasing these products can help support Comic Relief in store.  

By donating to and supporting Comic Relief, £1 could enable a mental health charity in the UK answer a call from an isolated person who desperately needs to talk to someone. £3 could pay for a counselling session for a child devastated by the loss of their parents to Ebola in Sierra Leone. £25 could ensure children are vaccinated against deadly diseases by paying for a community-wide check-up in a remote part of Ethiopia. £50 could pay for an in-school awareness raising session in the UK that helps children to stay safe from online abuse.
