Red Nose Day is coming!
This Friday, March 18, is the day for people to come together to fundraise, buy and donate for people in need.
The money raised goes towards helping people live free from poverty, violence, and discrimination.
This year the donations will also fund organisations that are supporting people right now in Ukraine, and those attempting to cross the border.
Celebrities such as Tom Daley and Jordan North have taken on extreme challenges to raise money for Comic Relief.
Tom Daley rowed, cycled, swam and ran his way from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to his hometown in Plymouth. Jordan North rowed the nations canals between London and his hometown of Burnley.
Across Merseyside schools, shops, offices, and more are doing what they can to raise money for Comic Relief this week.
Florence Melly Community Primary School in Liverpool are encouraging their students to wear ‘any brightly coloured clothes’ to school on Friday.
