Hello nurseries and early years settings

Red Nose Day returned on Friday 19 March and we teamed up with CBeebies favourites JoJo and Gran Gran to celebrate a very special Red Nose Day carnival.

Things might look a little different this year, but with our virtual fundraising ideas and Covid-safe tips (including advice on handling cash), you and your little ones can still get involved and have lots of fun.

Thank you to all of our school fundraising superheroes

Fundraising ideas

We’re bringing some sunshine to your fundraising with our carnival-themed Red Nose Day activities.

fundraising ideas

Wear your brightest colours and boldest patterns, along with a homemade carnival crown. Don’t forget to collect donations at the door or on JustGiving.

Pay to picnic

Instead of holding a bake sale this year, switch it to a picnic to help everyone keep their distance. Ask everyone to make a donation then bring a blanket and their favourite treats.

Meet Elida

RND21-Early-Years-Website-Image-8 4x3 1328x996px

Elida is a lively, happy six-year-old who lives with her grandmother, Agnes. She was born with cerebral palsy, but Agnes was determined this wouldn’t hold her back and used to carry her to school every day.

Now, with the help of Feed the Children Malawi, funded by Comic Relief, Elida has a wheelchair and Agnes has learnt how to help her exercise.

Find out more about Elida with our learning activities.

If you or any of your little ones have been affected by the issues in this film, you’ll find information on how to get help at here.
