It wouldn’t be Red Nose Day without the iconic red nose accessory – and this year’s bunch has been described as the “wildest yet”.
There are eight noses to track down, including the rare nose Cam the colourful chameleon.
So where can you pick yourself up a red nose, and where can you find other official merchandise, with proceeds going to charity?
Here is everything you need to know.
Where can I buy a red nose?
You can buy one red nose from the Comic Relief online shop for £1.50, although you should be aware that you cannot choose which nose you want but you are instead ordering a mystery red nose box.
Alternatively you can order a box of red noses for £60, or a box of red noses for schools starting at £20.
What other merchandise is there?
This year, you can get your hands on a selection of brand new aprons, designed by a collective of 11 artists in aid of Comic Relief and Red Nose Day 2022.
The aprons, and an additional homeware collection, feature special designs from a range of artists including Gemma Correll, Gok Wan, Rachel Joy, and Luke Christian’s Deaf Identity.
Similar collections have raised money for the charity in the past but this year’s collection for Homesense and TK Maxx features designs by artists from different disciplines, communities and backgrounds, including street artists, graphic designers and illustrators.
The limited edition collection also includes tote bags, greetings cards, notebooks and tea towels, all featuring the artists’ work. Limited-edition T-shirts featuring the artists’ designs are also be available.
The limited edition Comic Relief aprons and homeware are available to purchase in-store and online at Homesense and TK Maxx.
There are loads of other pieces of merchandise you can buy instead, including water bottles, wristbands, keyrings, lanyards, t-shirts, aprons, and more.
These official items will also be available through Sainsbury’s, Argos and TK Maxx.
How else can I donate?
You can also donate to Comic Relief in a number of ways as well through its website or by calling 03457 910 910.
You can choose to either donate as a once off or as a monthly recurring donation.
How else can I get involved?
There are loads of different ways you can get involved with Red Nose Day this year if you want to raise money for Comic Relief, whether it’s through a bake sale, running a marathon or doing a dress down day at work.
To start, you can register to fundraise for Red Nose Day via the Comic Relief website. By registering, you’ll be able to order your free fundraising pack and other fundraising tools as well.
You can fundraise as an individual or with some friends, with your work or with your school.
