Jump in the Sack with Cafédirect for Comic Relief this Red Nose Day

Pin It

Cafédirect is aiming to raise tens of thousands of pounds this year for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day on Friday 18th March and they need your help to get there!

Cafédirect is organising fundraising sack racing events, complete with village fête-style stalls and entertainment, in London, Bristol, Brighton and Edinburgh as well as encouraging the nation to run their own races. Full details of each event can be found here.

They have also created Sack Race kits so the Great British public can get together with friends, family and neighbours to host their own fun-fuelled Sack Races. These free kits are available to order via their special Red Nose Day website and are packed with tips & ideas, posters, coupons, tea to keep you fuelled and of course coffee sacks so you can hop, skip and jump your way into Red Nose Day history.

You can practice your sack racing technique with The Great Jump in the Sack Race Game. Every day from now until the end of March Cafédirect is rewarding the player with the fastest time a digital nosette so they can share their achievement with friends on Facebook.

There are lots of other ways to get involved in the fundraising. As well as jumping in the sack, you can donate to Comic Relief by purchasing a limited edition pack of Cafédirect tea or roast & ground coffee, 10p from every sale will go to Comic Relief.

About Comic Relief/ Red Nose Day

• By raising cash this Red Nose Day, you’re helping to change lives forever. That’s because Comic Relief spends all the money raised by the public to give extremely vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa a helping hand to turn their lives around.
• Comic Relief was launched on Christmas Day in 1985, live on BBC One. At that time, a devastating famine was crippling Ethiopia and something had to be done. That something was Comic Relief. The idea was simple – Comic Relief would make the public laugh while they raised money to help people in desperate need. Before too long, Red Nose Day was created and the first ever event in 1988 raised a staggering £15m. To date, twelve Red Nose Days have raised more than £500m. That money has helped, and is helping, to support people and communities in dire need both in the UK and Africa.
