Since 1999, with your help we’ve raised over £100m for Comic Relief!
By supporting Sport Relief, you helped to change lives forever. The money raised will be spent by Comic Relief right here in the UK, and across some of the world’s poorest countries, helping vulnerable and disadvantaged people to turn their lives around.
Helping people in the UK
In total, Comic Relief helps to fund more than 2,000 projects across the UK. Wherever you live in the UK, the chances are you’re within 30 miles of a Comic Relief-funded project.
Helping people internationally
Your Sport Relief cash also helps change lives in the world’s poorest communities.
The money raised for Sport Relief is used by Comic Relief to transform lives, here at home and across the world’s poorest communities. In the UK, your money could give shelter to young people living on the streets and protection to those living with domestic abuse.
In Bangladesh your money could help feed children without a home, in Africa it could provide communities with life- saving vaccines and in Brazil it could enable teenagers living in a slum to access training to increase their chances of finding work. And all that is just for starters.
