Add a Splash of Red to Your Home for Red Nose Day

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Are you wearing a red nose today, or wearing red of any kind?  Today we are allowed be be silly, to laugh and to give.  I remember the first red rose day, it was February 1988, I was in school and we all dressed up as clowns and the red noses were those plastic ones that pinched your nose.  I remember it was an incredible event like one we had not seen before.  Since it first launched they have unbelievably  raised over £950 million.  To honour this incredible event, instead of just wearing red, also add a splash of red in your home for Red Nose Day. What better way to start that with a fun, cool and quirky cushion that was designed to make a funky statement.  So let's all shout together ....
