Comic Relief

I know that some of you were slightly dubious about my sponsored posts but every now and then I am e-mailed about a cause which I feel does deserve the exposure.

In this instance, British Airways have teamed up with Comic Relief for a year long campaign called Flying Start to raise money to help transform the lives of disadvantaged children in the UK and around the world. They are kick starting the campaign with a headlining grabbing world record breaking comedy stunt on 12 March.

Dara O'Briain, Jack Whitehall and Jon Richardson will be teaming up with BA, Guinness World Records and will be setting the record for the 'Highest Stand-Up Comedy Gig in the World'.

The campaign will then continue for the rest of the year and BA customers will be invited to donate to Comic Relief. I personally come across children who have found themselves, at no fault of their own, in circumstances ranging from less than ideal to down right traumatic and will be pleased to support Comic Relief.

BA are also running a competition for 'audience' seats on this flight on 12th March - after all, is it really stand up comedy if there's no-one there to watch it? To be in with a chance of being one of 75 lucky people flying over the UK to enjoy two-and-a-half hours of stand-up for charity – including champagne and refreshments – fans can text 'Fly1' to 70300 or visit to enter the competition. Full terms and conditions are available from the Facebook page.

Whilst flying isn't really my thing by choice (I will take a plane if I have to, but I'd rather go to a gig on the ground) I will donate some of the fee for this post to Comic Relief.
