Red Nose Day 2013 update

Got this email today, what a fantastic achievement in these financially difficult times :-D


You utter legends

The cash from your incredible fundraising and donations keeps rolling in and we're delighted to reveal that the Red Nose Day 2013 total now stands at a stunning £93,968,291... with more still to come!

Lenny Henry considers it a testament to the British public's unwavering generosity. "Given these tough economic times, it's especially humbling that the British public dug so deep once again.

Red Nose Day shows the compassion of the public and their commitment to helping poor and vulnerable people, both here in the UK and across Africa."

Glad to read that Sue, I was particularly struck by DT's video, on malaria which was also shown previously

"The majority of people who watch Red Nose Day don’t donate any money.
Don’t, don’t be that person." ( edited to give exact quote)

( assuming you CAN manage to give something of course).

I always give something Rose, this year not as much as I would have liked to :-( People forget that fundraising happens over many months not just on the night! but the entertainment value is worth a lot :-D
