Make your face funny and snap a silly selfie for Red Nose Day today.

OVER the last few weeks people right across the West Midlands have been making their face funny for money to raise cash for this Red Nose Day, helping to change lives forever.


That's because Comic Relief spends the money raised to help change the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people right here in the West Midlands and across the UK and Africa.

Last Red Nose Day, people across the West Midlands raised and donated more than PS2.5million, helping to fund over 260 projects right here in our communities.

Once again, the West Midland's very own Lenny Henry has been leading the charge, joining the cast of famous faces supporting Red Nose Day who have been urging us all to put our funniest faces forward and raise some serious cash.

Since the last Red Nose Day, Comic Relief has helped over 12 million people living unimaginably tough lives all over the world, using money raised through Red Nose Day, Sport Relief and other partnerships. Money raised this Red Nose Day will help to change the lives of millions more. It's not too late to donate!

You can do your bit by snapping a silly selfie and texting FUNNY to 70011 to donate PS1 to Comic Relief and simply follow the instructions to send in your silly selfie.

Make sure you share your funny face photo on Facebook and Twitter with @ rednoseday and with us too @ birminghammail.

If you're looking for some funny face inspiration head over to take a look at the official Make Your Face Funny For Money fundraising page at which is packed with great ways to have some fun with your face along with a DIY face pack idea kit for you to download.

If you have something up your sleeve or have already taken up a fundraising challenge then why not tell us about it? And if you have a picture or two to send us, we'd love to see those, too (see email address at top left of page).
