AS Red Nose Day draws closer, we are asking readers how they would prefer to give to charity. Wherever you go, people are asking for your help - collection tins are rattled in the street, drinkers are asked to dip deep in the pub, and countless sponsorship forms are passed around the office.

You can even donate through your wages, depending on where you work.

How would you rather donate to charity? Vote in our online poll.
