8 Feb – A full list of Wine Relief wines is now available online here
Wine Relief 2013, the wine-based contribution to the fundraising activities of this year's Comic Relief, kicks off today. From 1 February until Red Nose Day on Friday 15 March 2013, retailers Laithwaites, Majestic, Virgin Wines, M&S, Waitrose, Oddbins and Selfridges as well as fine-wine traders Farr Vintners will donate a percentage from the sale of specially selected wines, thereby giving us wine lovers a chance to help change the lives of disadvantaged people living across the UK and Africa.
Since 1999, Wine Relief has raised over £4 million for Comic Relief. A full list of this year's Wine Relief wines is available here.
Do please use the comments box below to report on when and whether retailers are launching their Wine Relief wines. They all tend to start their campaigns on different days of the week – but we are of course extremely grateful for every small contribution.
Please also feel free to contact me via the comments box with any suggestions of how you think you might help to raise funds, whether you're connected to the wine trade or not. Every little helps and will be much appreciated.
