Every year, British celebs band together for Comic Relief, a charity group providing aid to Africa and to disadvantaged people in the UK. In the past, the Spice Girls released their song “Who Do You Think You Are” as the official 1997 Comic Relief single. In 2001, J.K. Rowling wrote two Harry Potter-related books, Quidditch Through The Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (with a foreword written by Albus Dumbledore!) for the cause.

This year, celeb projects include the following:

* Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders as well as other TV personalities took part in a Comic Relief car boot sale, or a garage sale as we might know it, and are encouraging people to start their own fundraisers for the charity.

* Sadie Frost will help launch a new Charlie and Lola book entitled But I Do Know All About Chocolate. £2 from the sale of each book will go to Comic Relief.

* Girl groups Girls Aloud and Sugababes are teaming up to release a cover of Aerosmith classic “Walk This Way.”

* Comedian Peter Kay is also releasing a song for the charity. This year, he’s doing a cover of “I’m Gonna Be (500 miles)” by The Proclaimers.
