Another fantastic fundraising effort from schools, teachers, parents and students has once again seen a successful year for Comic Relief, following Red Nose Day 2022 on the 18th March.
Building upon their partnership which began back in 2016, ParentPay, the UK market leader in school payments, are proud to share that almost half a million pounds (a total of £496,046) has been collected via our secure school payment platform.
Mark Brant, ParentPay Chief Executive, said: “Yet again we are blown away by the generosity showcased by everyone who took part in Red Nose Day this year.”
Mark added: “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to support this fantastic cause, by offering thousands of schools across the UK an opportunity to securely collect cashless donations. The money collected through ParentPay will go directly to Comic Relief, helping them to continue their vital work around the UK and the rest of the world.”
Michelle Bromhead, Red Nose Day Schools Fundraising Manager, commented: “We are so grateful to all the schools who fundraised for Red nose Day this year. Thank you so much! This amazing total raised on the ParentPay platform will be used to help transform the lives of people in the UK and around the world. Once again schools have shown us that they have the power to change lives.”
