Red Nose Donated by Jago Developments Ltd


You may already be aware that Emsworth in Hampshire is the UK’s first ever Red Nose town for Comic Relief and Jago Developments Ltd have supplied and donated the huge red noses, which have been dotted all around the coastal town as part of the fundraising festivities!

Although Jago Developments is Chichester based, our hearts very much lie in Emsworth. Office manager Laura Farren-Nix grew up in the town and her father (managing director Colin Farren), still lives in the pretty little fishing town on the West Sussex, Hampshire border. Not to mention the fact that Colin’s wife, other three daughter’s and his daughter-in-law either work or run businesses in Emsworth; His eldest Charlotte Clarke works for Henry Adams Estate agents. Daughter-in-law Laura Nix works for Henry Adams Holiday Lets. His wife Catherine Farren and daughter Christina Novis own The Sewing Bee Ltd (known well in the town for their Dress a girl Charity event) and Christina’s twin Katy Farren, who is the proprietor of Amaya Beauty Salon.

“We choose a charity each year to support, usually by putting our skills as fibreglass specialists to good use (for example Colin the War Horse). When someone mentioned big red shiny noses for Emsworth, it seemed the obvious choice. Comic relief is such a fabulous charity; not only does is raise vital funds for extremely worthy causes in the UK and Africa, it also brings people and communities together to do it. It seems appropriate that this British institution should have its very own Red Nose Town.  We are very excited to see the noses go up and we are looking forward to participating in all the exciting events taking place between the 13th – 15th March” (Laura Farren-Nix)

A BBC film crew are expected in Emsworth on Friday the 13th and footage of the town’s ‘Silent Disco’ event to be broadcast at various times throughout their television coverage.

Comic Relief was launched on Christmas day 1985, live on BBC One from the Safawa refugee camp in Sudan.
