Amazon is the official home of the Red Nose and a partner of Comic Relief, a charity that raises money to tackle the impact of poverty, injustice, conflict, and climate change in the UK and around the world. The charity was co-founded in 1985 by comedy scriptwriter Richard Curtis and comedian Sir Lenny Henry, and every year hosts a huge, nationwide fundraising campaign called Red Nose Day.

Colleagues at the fulfilment centre in Daventry took part in a week-long series of fundraising activities in the lead up to Red Nose Day (Friday 15 March). Events included a sports day with two local schools, Daventry Hill School and Isebrook School, with the aim of raising funds to support the work of Comic Relief. The two schools, as well as three others in the area, also received a donation of books totalling £1,000 from the Amazon Daventry team.

Ralph Baker, an employee from Amazon in Daventry who took part in the activities, added: “It was great to have a laugh with the Daventry team in celebration of Red Nose Day. We had a lot of fun raising awareness and funds together for a great cause, through our sports day and more.”

This year’s brand-new plant-based Red Nose range, which is guaranteed to raise smiles as well as life changing money, is available now on Amazon, the official home of the Red Nose.

Each Red Nose comes with a QR code that takes you to the Red Nose Day Joke Generator, in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), which reels off joke after joke to make you smile. There are four fun characters to collect as well as a limited edition rare ‘Gold’ Nose, all of which can be recycled at home for the very first time.

Amazon has also teamed up with award-winning singer-songwriter Paloma Faith to release "Enjoy Yourself" (The Red Nose Day Edition) in support of Comic Relief for this year’s Red Nose campaign. Paloma has also created a hilarious duet of the new single with Alexa, which fans can hear by asking “Alexa, sing your duet with Paloma Faith."

Last year, together with its employees, customers, and partners, Amazon raised over £4.8 million for Comic Relief. Amazon employees up and down the country have been doing something funny for money, helping to raise even more money for Red Nose Day 2024.
