#ACFrednose - get involved in comic relief’s red nose day appeal

Help raise money to help transform the lives of millions of people, at home in the UK and across Africa, by taking part in Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day appeal.

There are lots of ways to get involved but, if you haven’t already come up with your own idea, here are some easy ways for you to get involved and raise some money.

1) Sponsored Parade Night

Get your detachment (with their red noses and Funny For Money faces) to hold a special Parade Night. Take a photo of your cadets holding a banner displaying the text Donate £1 by texting FUNNY to 70001.

When you’ve captured the event with a photo or video post it on the ACF Facebook page or send a Tweet to @ArmyCadetsUK using #ACFrednose. (Check out the Facebook page and Twitter timeline to see how others have made their faces Funny For Money.)

2) Individual selfies

Post your ‘Funny For Money’ face on the ACF Facebook page or send a Tweet to @ArmyCadetsUK to encourage your friends and family to donate. (Don’t forget to donate £1 by texting FUNNY to 70001 - Comic Relief will reply to your text with a link that will allow you to send them your photo and you might appear in the Red Nose Day campaign.)

Spread the word

Ask your friends and family to donate £1 by texting FUNNY to 70001. When they donate £1 it’s up to them if they want to take part by sending in their own Funny For Money selfie. Either way Comic Relief gets another £1 to help community projects.

3) Use your imagination

You could add to your sponsorship total by selling cakes and soft drinks or maybe organise a raffle or do a boot shine. Whatever you do, tell us about your activities on the Facebook page using #ACFrednose
