Comic Relief is back for 2024 and thousands across the UK are doing their bit to raise money towards the fundraising event.

Money raised through Comic Relief and Red Nose Day helps support millions of people across the UK and around the world by fighting "poverty through humour and fun".

Last year saw £1 from every donation help in numerous ways, with 76p helping vital projects, 7.2p allocating effective funding, 1.8p raising awareness for poverty and 15p helping raise even more money for Comic Relief.

There are several ways to donate and support Comic Relief, through buying Red Nose merchandise, donating to show support for celebrity challenges or donating to local community events in aid of the day.

Find out how you can donate towards Comic Relief ahead of Red Nose Day this week.
