Suzy Vickers is Press Officer for Comic Relief, a major UK charity which strives to create a just world free from poverty. Its fundraising campaigns, Red Nose Day and Sport Relief, have raised over £750 million since it began in 1985 for projects in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries.
Suzy often travels with Comic Relief accompanying journalists on press trips to show how the money raised is being put to good use.
