Red Nose Day 2017 has raised a massive £73,026,234

After a hugely successful Red Nose Day last Friday, Comic Relief thanks all the back-waxers, the fancy-dressers, the cake bakers and the sponsored silencers, as the current Red Nose Day 2017 total stands at a jaw-dropping £73,026,234 and Comic Relief couldn’t have done it without the great British public coming together and showing, once again, their incredible generosity over the past few weeks.

Comic Relief Co-Founder, Sir Lenny Henry, said: “Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that has helped to raise an incredible amount of money this Red Nose Day for people who really need it most here in the UK and across the world. From the fantastic people across the UK who baked cakes, hosted parties and wore crazy outfits to work and school, to those who took on Red Nose Day challenges and donated, your money is seriously going to change lives. On behalf of everyone at Comic Relief, we cannot thank you enough.”
