The Big Night In Appeal

Whether you're watching or taking part in The Big Night In Appeal we've got some great ideas how you can help. For one night only, Comic Relief and BBC Children in Need are coming together for a special night of entertainment to celebrate people who are making a difference and support those affected by these extraordinary times.

As one of our registered charities on Pingit you can create your own fundraising page for Comic Relief and watch the donations roll in. Our charity platform is fee free- which means when you give 100% we make sure it all goes to your chosen charity. Find out how to create your fundraising page here.

Or if you'd prefer to simply make a donation, you can do so here.* 100% of your donation will go straight to Comic Relief, including any Gift Aid contribution. Better still, Barclays have agreed to match donations made to Comic Relief via the Barclays link pound for pound, up to a total of £1m.
