Between the 12th of February and the 15th of March, colleagues in the KPMG Crimsonwing London office will be celebrating Red Nose Day 2013 by making a mess in their kitchens and gaining back all the weight lost during the January fast.
All members of staff, volunteer cooks and food lovers, will bring homemade treats to the office: muffins, cakes, cookies and all sorts of other yummy things made with care in the name of charity!
All day long, for breakfast, lunch, tea time, or just because it smells amazing in KPMG Crimsonwing’s kitchen, colleagues and guests will be able to have a bite and donate money to a great cause. David Walsh, CEO of KPMG Crimsonwing, will even be making his famous peanut butter cookies to support Red Nose Day 2013! The money we raise will help people living unimaginably tough lives across the UK and Africa.
Information on Red Nose Day 2013
- Red Nose Day 2013 is heading your way on Friday 15th March when the Great British public will once again be asked to Do Something Funny for Money.
- By raising cash this Red Nose Day, you’re helping to change lives forever. That’s because Comic Relief spends the money raised to help change the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa.
- Comic Relief was launched on Christmas Day in 1985, live on BBC One. At that time, a devastating famine was crippling Ethiopia and something had to be done. That something was Comic Relief. The idea was simple – Comic Relief would make the public laugh while they raised money to help people in desperate need. Before too long, Red Nose Day was created and the first ever event in 1988 raised a staggering £15m.
- This year, 2013, marks the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day which has raised over £600m and helped to change lives both in the UK and Africa.
