15th March Fundraising Results
The Charity Comic Relief was launched in 1988 to raise money and create a world free from poverty. They believe every person, wherever they are in the world, has a right to fresh running water, education and gender equality. Over the last 30 years through the fund raising efforts of people throughout the UK, Comic relief has managed to raise over £1.1 billion. Red Nose Day is a national event in the UK where a key percentage of their fundraising efforts occur with many businesses, schools and individuals actively participating to help raise money.
In 2019 Comic Relief and its Red Nose Day event raised a massive £64 million.
At Whitehall Garden Centre we supported Comic Relief on Red Nose Day by donating £1 from the sale of every hot drink and cupcake sold in our restaurants across all sites as well as holding a raffle for the chance to win a hamper full of treats.
