Les Enfants de Frankie - Red Nose Day

Les Enfants de Frankie - Created in November 1997, the Monegasque Association “Les Enfants de Frankie” which supports sick, disabled, and disadvantaged children in Monaco and throughout the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region by bringing them comfort and joy, is pleased to announce the return of its “Red Nose Day” on December 6th to coincide with Saint Nicolas’s Day, the patron saint of children.

The big day is held under the high patronage of Prince Albert II of Monaco and the concept of the Red Nose Day was brought to Monaco nearly 20 years ago by the founder of Les Enfants de Frankie Francien Giraudi. However, last year to promote sustainability the plastic red nose was replaced by a reusable shopping bag. For those who wish to get involved in raising money for such a good local charity the bags, which cost €2.50, will be on sale from tomorrow Thursday 26th October, at a number of different sites in the Principality.
