All the main supermarkets and off-licence chains are
taking part in the initiative. Schofield said: “Wine Relief is one of the most enjoyable ways of raising money that I have come across and I am delighted to be involved.”
Wine Relief starts on February 1, with 10% from sales of selected wines going to Comic Relief until Red Nose Day on March 11.
The wine scheme has raised an accumulative total of more than £1.2m since 1999 and the aim is to break the £2m mark this year. The theme of Red Nose Day 2005 is ‘Big Hair and Beyond - Just do Something’.
