Great British Bake Off co-host Alison commented: “Laughter truly is the best medicine, so I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Comic Relief this year for Red Nose Day, and this year’s aprons are real showstoppers.
“I had the best time on set and it was made all the better knowing the money raised from this year’s range from Homesense goes towards supporting those facing the toughest times of their lives.
“If you can, get involved and help make a difference.”
Comic Relief has partnered with homeware brand Homesense, which is part of the TK Maxx family, for the collection of aprons and homeware which includes tote bags, lunch bags, notebooks and plush toys.
What is Red Nose Day for?
The money raised from the collection will support Comic Relief’s work in tackling issues facing children and young people globally, including poverty, conflict and climate change.
Creator of Wallace and Gromit, Nick Park, added: “It was such an honour to be asked by Richard Curtis and (his partner) Emma Freud to lend our characters to the Red Nose Day 2024 campaign, a lovely request that I couldn’t turn down, and the rest of the studio couldn’t resist.
“It has been a joy to create new artwork and animation for the campaign, working with the talented TJX (owner of TK Maxx) team has been a great experience for us all at Aardman.
“I’m really proud of the range of products and hope they bring a smile.”
