Making a Difference: 25 Years of Red Nose Day
Can you believe that the first ever Red Nose Day took place on Feb 5th 1988?!
This year marks the 25th anniversary of this inaugural event and to mark the occasion, Comic Relief would like to celebrate the progress of Africa and the difference the money raised by the public has made, both in Africa and here in the UK.
This week, three bloggers are heading to Accra in Ghana with Comic Relief, to visit projects and see where money raised by Red Nose Day has changed lives.
Obviously, they will be live blogging and tweeting throughout their trip – you can follow their journey and experiences via their blogs or on the official Team Honk site.
On Twitter, use the #teamhonk and #goodwork hashtags for regular updates and pics.
They will be escorted by Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall as they visit four projects in Ghana – a women’s bakery, a school in a slum area, a vaccination clinic and a mental health project to see the good work that Comic Relief has achieved over the years and witness first hand how the money raised has changed peoples lives.
Good luck and safe travels #teamhonk! Looking forward to hearing all about your trip and of course, about all the #goodwork being done in Africa.
