ENNISKILLEN is getting “red-y” to act as a fundraising hub for tonight’s Comic Relief, with BT staff from across the North descending on the town to lend a helping hand. 

More than 100 staff will be manning the phones at the BT Centre in Enniskillen tonight, which has been transformed into a pledge centre for the annual event. It will be one of eight across the UK, with others in Dundee, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Newcastle, Shrewsbury, and Warrington.


BT volunteers from Belfast, and Portadown are travelling to the town to lend their support to colleagues tonight, while fundraising events will be taking place in the town throughout the day.

With support from Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Enniskillen Castle will also be illuminated red this evening.

Andrew Hamill, from the BT Digital Care Centre in Enniskillen said: “It’s very exciting to be involved in Comic Relief again this year and we’re delighted that so many BT people are lending their support to such a worthy cause. Everyone has been working hard to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible and although the BT teams will be taking on different challenges, all will share the same aim of helping to ensure as much as possible is raised Comic Relief.”
