Red Nose Day is back and Sainsbury’s Ely is out in full force to help customers and colleagues fundraise and take up the Red Nose Day challenge to “make your face funny for money”.
Fundraising activities at the store will take place on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th March and will include colleagues wearing fancy dress to work, charity leg waxing and other activities in the main entrance. Customers will be able to get their faces painted, and take part in a colouring competition and Red Nose treasure hunt in the lead up to the big weekend.
Stores all over the UK will be taking part in a number of fundraising activities to raise vital funds.
Karen Watts, Store Manager, said: “Our colleagues love getting involved with Red Nose Day fundraising. We have some brilliant activities planned this year and we look forward to inviting customers to join in with the fun.”
The Ely team is now encouraging customers to show their support for Comic Relief by picking up one of the official Red Noses or Red Nose Day merchandise. This year, there are nine Red Noses to collect, all hidden in their own surprise bags. At least 60p from each £1 Nose goes to help transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people here in the UK and across Africa.
