Hello primary schools

Red Nose Day returned on Friday 19 March. Whether you dressed up as superheroes, took on a supercharged challenge or did a socially distanced quiz, we showed the world that funny is power.

Things might look a little different this year, but with our Covid-safe tips and virtual fundraising ideas, you can still have loads of fun.

Thank you to all of our school fundraising superheroes

Fundraising ideas

Keep it simple with a couple of fundraising power hours or go all out with a Red Nose Day challenge. 

fundraising ideas

From Wonder Woman and Superman to Air-Guitar-Girl and Bakes-Brilliant-Cakes-Boy, choose or create a superhero and pay a small fee to dress up for the day.

Reveal your class, bubble or school’s hidden superpower, then get sponsored to take on a Red Nose Day challenge. Our favourite? A power ballads danceathon, of course.

Pay-to-play quiz

Meet Ethan

Nine-year-old Ethan loves singing, baking and making people laugh. At 14 months, he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and doctors said he would never sit unaided, crawl, walk or run.

Thanks to a brilliant project funded by Comic Relief, he’s now at a mainstream school and loves running around and playing football.

Watch our short film and use the primary school learning resources to explore how your fundraising can help other young people like Ethan.

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