NA Winners - Cards

We received some extraordinary nominations for the Nosey Awards this year and these five amazing fundraisers wowed us with their imagination, creativity and unstoppable enthusiasm. From solo achievements to team efforts, these superstars represent what it means to be a truly fabulous Red Nose Day fundraiser.

Check out their stories - and maybe pick up some inspiration for next time!

The Lenny

Won by Rae Saleem 

Defying all odds after a cycling accident left him paralysed from the neck down, Rae learned how to walk again. He has been using the power of movement to raise funds for Red Nose Day by sweating it out on a Monopoly inspired run through London, pedalling his heart out during a spin-athon, throwing punches in a BodyCombat-athon and encouraging his family and community to join him, get moving and raise funds. 

Solo Superstar

Won by Weininger Irwin 

First ever Gladiators champion, Weininger celebrated his birthday while doing a 24 hour row-athon for Red Nose Day 2022. Weininger went bigger and wackier the following year, taking indoor rowing machines on the London underground and rowing the length of the Elizabeth Line from Heathrow to Shenfield. He followed up this challenge with a double fundraiser - a two-hour row-athon for school children plus an attempt to beat the record for the biggest soul line dance. Weininger brings people of all ages together to raise money and help make a difference; from schoolchildren to Ageless Teenagers, a community group he set up for the over 60’s.

Class Act

Won by Banstead Community Junior School 

This exceptional school has been raising funds for Red Nose Day since 2009! Some of the legendary activities they organised were a Colour Run, where 15 members of staff volunteered to run through 300 plus children, who were pelting them with powder paint. Previous years saw them take part in a Chopstick Jelly-Eating Contest, gunked in slime, perform a staff rap, guess the baby staff photo or compete in the Big Copper Challenge - laying out 1p and 2p coins to see which class can create the longest line.

Dream Team

Won by Buskerteers Choir 

This Essex choir recorded a lockdown special for Red Nose Day in 2021 – a cover of Queen’s ‘I Want to Break Free’. In 2022 they followed up with their take on party-gate and released a single titled ‘Party Hard’. The following year saw choir master Andrew Small dressing up as Dolly Parton and, together with 200 choir members, emerge from supermarket aisles to perform a rousing rendition of Dolly Parton’s hit song ‘9 to 5’. This year, Andrew and fellow choir masters dressed up as Tina Turner and together with 400 singers stopped shoppers in their tracks with their flash mob version of Proud Mary.

Rising Star

Won by Sami and Rafi 

These two brothers love a challenge! Sami started fundraising in 2021 when he was just 5, running 1 to 2 miles every day until he had completed 20 miles. Rafi, then aged 10, walked 20+ miles in one day for Red Nose Day. They have been going from strength-to-strength since, by completing 30 and 50 mile triathlons as well as cycling challenges. This year, they toured residential homes with their comedy and music act raising funds and spreading a ‘Comic Relief Smile’ amongst the residents.

A massive thank you to every single person who dressed up, partied, sung, danced, challenged themselves and got stuck in for Red Nose Day. You’ve helped us raise over £40 million and counting for Red Nose Day 2024 which makes such a huge difference to countless lives both here in the UK and around the world.

Without you we simply could not do it.
