You raise and donate amazing amounts of money for Red Nose Day and Sport Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives.
We add together all the money and use it to give grants to thousands of charities who are working to help people living tough lives, both here in the UK and around the world.
It takes two years for all the money to be allocated. This gives charities ample time to apply for grants and gives us plenty of time to make sure we’re only funding the very best ones.
We give money out in stages, rather than in a lump sum. That way we can make sure we’re kept updated regularly about how the money’s being put to good use.
While the cash is waiting to be paid out, we invest the pennies wisely.
It’s the return from those investments that helps to pay our running costs. This means you can be sure that all the money you give is spent on helping people.
