Primary fundraising ideas

Young person smiling and holding two red noses

Take on a sponsored challenge as individuals, a class or a whole school. Put in the hours by dancing, reading, or keepy-uppy-ing for as long as you can. Whatever you choose, collect sponsorship and go all out to smash your target.

Join schools across the UK in a dressing-up day to remember – whether it’s as Superman, Wonder Woman, a superhero of your own creation, or a local hero in your community. Just pay a small fee and dress to impress.

Red Nose and Spoon Race

Pit class against class for a distance dash, or hold a whole-school relay in the playground. Invite parents and carers, collect donations and get sponsored to keep the Nose on the spoon as long as you can.

Bake a Difference

Set up a stall at break time or after school and get selling to turn delicious bakes into serious dough. Cook up a family favourite or try one of our Red Nose Day recipes. It’s a choux-in for success.

Pay-to-Play Quiz

Collect donations for a lunchtime brain-teaser or make an event of it selling tickets for a students vs. parents vs. teachers clash. You could even set up a snack bar on the side to bring in some extra cash.

Learn through play

LEGO® at the ready!

We’re super excited to be working with the LEGO® Group to inspire learning through play this Red Nose Day.

We’re encouraging pupils to create their very own Red Nose habitat with free LEGO® Build the Change factsheets and activities. We are keen to offer pupils a wide range of inclusive activities that they can engage with on Red Nose Day, giving them the power to fundraise and change lives.

Meet Teddy

Nine-year-old Teddy from County Durham was born with cerebral palsy, has epilepsy, and is visually impaired. When he was younger, he felt different to other children and often felt left out. Since going to music and drama classes run by North East Sight Matters and funded by Comic Relief, he has started to try new things, gain confidence and make new friends.
