Red Nose Day is approaching so Rovers and beauty expert Blondie are collaborating in a unique fundraising challenge in an effort for raise £4000 to help transform lives in the UK and Africa.



The challenge, which takes place on Thursday 28th February, will involve The Doncaster Rovers first team being made over with red lipstick in a unique challenge with Beauty by Blondie. 

Doncaster Rovers Captain Rob Jones said “We always love to support this charity and the players can’t wait“

Blondie, who is fast becoming known as the brand new Beauty Expert on the scene said: “One in ten men in the UK wear make up, and I can’t think of a funnier way to raise money than seeing the Doncaster Rovers wearing their team colour on their lips”.

Doncaster Rovers Chief Executive said on the fundraising: “We are delighted to be working with Blondie in this unique fundraising challenge. The lads are being great sports and I hope that everyone will support them by wearing red noses and red lipstick at our Red Nose Day honorary match”

The League One football club is no stranger to raising money for charity and last year fans helped to raise an enormous amount for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospital when Louis Tomlinson fetched his Three Horseshoes team to the stadium. One Direction’s charity single for Red Nose Day “Teenage Kicks” has soared to number 1 in 63 countries. Louis is supporting Doncaster
