Due to the fantastic fundraising efforts from schools, and generous donations from parents, over half a million pounds (a total of £577,000) in donations has been collected for Red Nose Day 2021 via our secure school payment platform. Comic Relief aims to tackle mental health stigma, help children survive and thrive, ensure people have a safe place to be, protect women and families at risk of domestic abuse and much more.
The partnership between ParentPay and Comic Relief, which began in 2016, will continue to support Comic Relief and thousands of schools and parents around the UK to securely donate without cash to this fantastic cause.
Mark Brant, ParentPay Chief Executive Officer, said: “Comic Relief plays a vital role in funding organisations working at ground level to support the most vulnerable people and communities”
Mark added: “Given the current challenges with physical payments, we’re honoured to be able to make a difference and support the fundraising efforts of schools with our cashless payments system.”
Michelle Bromhead, Red Nose Day, Schools Fundraising Manager, commented: “We are so pleased we could partner with ParentPay for Red Nose Day 2021 to make it safe and easy for schools, parents and pupils to donate. Your donations will make such a difference to those who need it most, thank you!”
