Red Nose Day celebrates 15th anniversary

Red Nose Day celebrates 15th anniversary

By Stephanie Horsman - November 4, 2019

Monegasque association Les Enfants de Frankie will host the 15th annual Red Nose Day next month to raise money for sick and disadvantage children in the entire Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region.

The event, which will be held on 6th December, was chosen purposefully. It marks Saint Nicholas’s Day, the patron saint of children, and signifies a day of support to children in the area who are in difficulty. 

Those wishing to take part can do so by fixing a “nose” to their vehicle, available at the post offices in the Principality, certain pharmacies and newsagents, charity stands in Fontvieille shopping centre, as well as at the Carrefour Monaco Supermarket, for a small €2 donation.

The nose, which has had a makeover this year with the addition of a star in lieu of the left eye, represents hope and is in keeping with the mascot of the organisation, Frankie the Clown.

The donations will go toward various projects and events made to improve the lives of children in the region who are in need. They organise workshops, excursions and visits to children in hospital and distribute toys, clothing and food parcels to children in need.
