Red Nose Day 2011 in Kent
Red Nose Day logo

With Red Nose Day here again on Friday 18 March, the entire nation is gearing up to do something funny for money!

The aim is simple - to have a laugh, raise tons of cash and transform lives across Africa and the UK.

And it works! In fact it's likely you're never more than 30 miles from a Comic Relief supported project.

All the money raised and donated by the public goes directly towards projects that transform people's lives across Africa and at home in the UK.

Across the UK your cash can help to provide comfort for isolated older people and help to give young carers their childhoods back.

In Africa, your money helps to restore people's sight, to protect families from deadly malaria, to give an education to children whose lives have been torn apart by war, and so much more.

Stand up for Comic Relief

For this year's Red Nose Day appeal, BBC Radio Kent's Matthew Davies has been raising money and a few laughs.

He performed a stand up routine on stage to raise money and make people laugh.
