THERE’S not long to go to bid for cash from our monster £50,000 Comic Relief giveaway.
As Red Nose Day approaches it’s the chance for community groups across the area to get a slice of cash to help those most in need.
The deadline for entries is March 16, the day after the big fundraising day.
Grants of between £500 and £1,000 are available.
The charity’s slogan this year is ‘Do something funny for money’ so tell us what you are up to. On Tuesday Sainsbury’s in Farlington have roped in a dinosaur from the BBC series Walking with Dinosaurs to help them do a Harlem Shake dance.
People are being invited to come to the store and donate cash to have their picture taken with the dinosaur – who will be decked out in red – from 3.30am.
At 4pm staff and customers will take part in a mass Harlem Shake to raise money for Comic Relief.
Apply for a grant at hantscf.org.uk/grants/available-grants/red-nose-day-community-cash.aspx.
We want to know what you are doing to raise money for Comic Relief. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us your plans.
