"Charity" is the fifth episode of the second series of the British Office. It was written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant and aired on October 28, 2002.


It's Red Nose Day at Wernham Hogg, which Brent treats like a national holiday. Gareth is hopping everywhere, Dawn is selling kisses, Keith is dressed as Ali G, Tim is hiding Gareth's possessions and Neil is disco-dancing with Rachel (Brent performs a horrendous dance when trying to compete with them), all for charity. David eagerly awaits a photo opportunity from the local paper, but the pictures cannot be used due to the lack of light. Neil and Jennifer inform David, who is dressed in a Bernie Clifton ostrich costume, that they are firing him. Tim, along with Gareth's friends "Jimmy the Perv" and "The Oggmonster", pays for a kiss from Dawn
