Comic Relief started as a charity in 1985 with a goal to raise as much money as possible for lives in Africa and the UK after the success of Live Aid that same year. Comic Relief came up with the idea of raising money through comedy which goes with their current message of “Do Something Funny For Money”.
Comic Relief officially started on Christmas Day 1985 and has been running successfully for 34 years.
Everyone at Harmless would like to say a BIG thank you to Comic Relief. By giving money on Red Nose Day you are showing your support to projects across the world- projects like ours. Harmless are supported by Comic Relief to help young people who self harm; they help us to save lives.
Harmless have had a long and successful relationship with Comic Relief; starting in 2012, we continue to work closely with the wonderful organisation today. In 2018, they gave us £150k to provide self harm and suicide crisis support services to those aged 19 to 34.
We also had the pleasure of hosting Comic Relief CEO, Liz Warner, in March 2019. As part of the visit, two young people spoke about how Harmless and The Tomorrow Project had supported them and the positive impact our work, funded by Comic Relief, had on their lives.
Thank you and please continue to support #RND text ‘YES’ to 70205 to donate £5.
