Read all about it: Comic Relief partners with digital storytelling platform Wattpad


If you love a good story, then this one’s for you.

This Red Nose Day, we’re happy to be launching a new partnership with the storytelling platform Wattpad. Wattpad is quickly gaining popularity in the UK and now sees over 1.5 million people logging in each month to read the free page-turners.

Telling stories has always been an important part of what we do here at Comic Relief. We work with people all around the world who inspire us, driving us forward in the work we do. We’re excited to trial a new platform to tell meaningful stories through written word, as well as offering brand new humour.

Today we’re launching our campaign. You’ll be able to read a short story about Ikmatu: a girl who was on the frontline of the fight against Ebola. You’ll also find the first chapter of our collaboration with Leigh Ansell, a Wattpad author with huge following. Leigh’s characters Mia and Alex take on dare-based fundraising in their school and events unfold comically. More exclusive content will be released over the coming weeks.

For all the latest, follow us on Wattpad.
