This year we’re supporting Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day by making our faces funny for money!
It’s one of our favourite Red Nose Day themes yet and we’ve raided our warehouse for tonnes of novelty wigs, glasses and accessories that we’ll all wear to work on Friday 13th March. We’re going to ask everyone who makes their face funny for money to donate a few pounds and if someone doesn’t dress up… well, there might just be a fine for that!!
We couldn’t resist having a trial dress up so keep scrolling down to see the hilarious photos of the Party Delights team who’ve been encouraged to raise money by doing what they do best… being silly! And of course, we’ve got lots of great ideas to help you out with your own fundraising too.
So get ready…
Stick on your best wig and fancy tash…
(The sillier the better).
And say cheese for Comic Relief!
Strike your best pose…
Embrace your silly side…
Tweet your crazy photos to @rednoseday…
And above all…
Raise loads of money for charity!

Give yourself a funny face
This year’s theme is make your face funny for money so why not get everyone to paint their faces for charity?

Download the official Red Nose Day fundraising pack
If you’re short on ideas, the official Red Nose Day fundraising pack is a lifesaver! It’s got loads of great fundraising ideas as well as sponsorship forms, posters and information about how the money raised by Comic Relief is used to help people all over the UK and Africa.
Run a Great Comic Relief Bake Off
Here at Party delights we don’t need much of an excuse to hold a bake sale and they always go down a storm for charity events. Ask everyone in your office to bring something in as a contribution to the bake sale (homemade or shop-bought is fine as it’s all for a good cause) and nominate two or three people to run the cake stand.
Choose a price per cake or just ask for donations. And if you find that there’s loads left at the end of the day, bag up the leftovers and sell them off for £2 a bag to make sure nothing goes to waste.

Hold a quiz
Quizzes are great for school or workplace fundraising and thanks to the official Red Nose Day site, you don’t need to worry about thinking of your own questions.
Download the ready-made Red Nose Day quiz from the official site and ask everyone to pay a pound to enter. Then use a portion of the takings or another small gift as a prize for the winner.
Do a sponsored silence or a danceathon
Know someone who just can’t stop talking? Get them to zip it for a whole day and raise tonnes of money in the process. Alternatively, get sponsored to do something fun like dancing or hula hooping for as long as you can. You’ll raise loads of money and have loads of fun so everyone wins!
This is a good start but if you need any more inspiration, head over to the official Red Nose Day website for tonnes of great fundraising ideas. And to stock up on silly accessories, visit our fancy dress shop.
