Have your say

With Comic Relief just around the corner on Friday, March 13, have you thought of any ways of joining in the fundraising fun?

If you are getting involved in any way we want to hear from you.

One lot getting prepared to clown around on the day locally are the team at The Nottingham Building Society’s Skegness branch.

They will be taking donations for comic relief in the lead up to and throughout Red nose day.

A spokesman at the branch said: “If you are visiting or passing by, pop in to the branch and have a go at our pin the nose on

the clown game, with a chance to win a prize.”

Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution.

It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money at home, school and work.

A special night of TV will air on the BBC, with comedy and entertainment to inspire the nation to give generously.

Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and Africa.
