I can’t believe it’s been 25 years.
TWENTY FIVE freakin’ YEARS.
Twenty five years since my 14-year-old self shut herself away in her room with drinks and snacks, the portable TV on until the early hours of the morning…
Watching the first ever Comic Relief.
Yes, Red Nose Day has been doing its #goodwork for a quarter of a century.
Considering the first one raised £15 million, just imagine how much has been raised since it all started – and how many people have been helped.
Just now, 3 bloggers known as #TeamHonk are on a mission in Ghana, to see first-hand some of the #goodwork that’s been done thanks to the comedy folks who’ve been entertaining us for a generation.
And as if I’m not green enough with envy through my red nose, they’ve got two of my fave TV presenters out there with them – Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall.
According to their schedule, you could be seeing their faces over your cornflakes this morning, as they’re visiting a vaccination project at 8am which is being recorded for TV and radio.
Britmums are having a #goodwork Twitter party at 11am today – so there’ll be plenty of hashtag action then if you want to check it out.
And once they’re back, Team Honk will be sharing details of fundraising events the entire blogging community can get involved in.
In the meantime, here’s some of my memories of Red Nose Day over the years….
The next Red Nose Day is on March 15.
In honour of my 14-year-old self, I may just lock myself in my bedroom with a supply of lemonade and jam butties.
What do you think?
