Our Red Noses have been flying off the shelves at Oxfam ever since we launched the first Red Nose over two decades ago. And over the years, the amazing shop managers and volunteers have sold millions of Noses and other merchandise for us. This year, they were stocking the Red Noses, Pin Badges, Wristbands and Trolley Tokens.
Oxfam is also one of the many charities that receive grants from Comic Relief to support a number of their projects across Africa. In 2012, Comic Relief awarded Oxfam £2.2m to fund a programme in Ethiopia which is supporting honey farmers, particularly women, through training, boosting access to essential inputs and equipment, and ensuring they can access the booming market for honey. So it all goes full circle in the best possible way.
We were delighted to have Oxfam on-board again as one of our Red Nose Day 2015 partners and look forward to working with them for many years to come.
