04 May 2015 - Domestic & General rings the bell for Red Nose Day 2015

Earlier this year, Domestic & General proudly announced its support for Red Nose Day 2015. On Friday 13 March, Red Nose Day took over screens across the nation with an almighty line-up of comedy gold, and around 200 staff volunteered to receive donation calls.

The volunteers put the fun in fundraising by undertaking a range of activities including senior managers serving cakes to staff, a five-aside football tournament, a dress down day and a ‘pulling funny faces’ for money selfie competition.

Red Nose Day comes along every two years and combines two very British things: having a laugh and helping others.

Thanks to the generosity of the great British public, Comic Relief has raised over £960million which has gone towards changing the lives of people in the UK and across Africa.

This year’s Red Nose Day asked the nation to ‘make your face funny for money’, and the money raised by the public helps people living unimaginably tough lives, both at home in the UK and Africa.
