On Friday 13 March we’ll all be making our face funny for money (this year’s call to action!) as Red Nose day comes around. And this year there’s a fashion edge to proceedings. The charity has teamed up with Anya Hindmarch to bring you one of the most stylish charity T-shirts we’ve ever seen!

Anya explained why she was so keen to get involved, ‘The tireless and very brilliant efforts of the team at Comic Relief are incredibly inspiring. To be a part of the 2015 campaign and support such a wonderful cause is an honour. And quite frankly, fun!’

And they’ve enlisted the help of some of our favourite men to model them.

The Red Nose Day Designer T-shirt collection is available exclusively in TK Maxx stores nationwide and online at tkmaxx.com with at least £5 from each sale going to the charity.

For details of more of the designs available (by designers including Henry Holland and Diane Von Furstenberg) see Elle.co.uk – the magazine has produced four special covers, with some of the proceeds going to Comic Relief, too!

The cast and creators of The Imitation Game are calling for people to support a petition that calls for the pardoning over 49,000 men convicted of crimes under anti-gay laws.

Each of these 49,000 men deserves the justice and acknowledgment from the British government that this intolerant law brought not only unwarranted shame, but horrific physical and mental damage and lost years of wrongful imprisonment to these men. Alan Turing was pardoned in 2013, but the other estmated 49,000 men deserve the same.
