Bachelor sweethearts swapped their usual red rose for a red nose to support a children's charity.

Art Green jumped at the chance to support the Cure Kids Red Nose Day 2016 Campaign with Matilda Rice.

"We have really enjoyed taking part in our Fiji challenge but raising funds is what this is all about so swapping the red rose for a Red Nose seems like a fun way to raise funds for what is a very serious cause."

The couple spent time at Auckland Airport's The Loop Duty Free, one of Cure Kids Associate Partners, to show their support. They were returning from Fiji after taking part in the Accor Hotels Race to Survive which is a four day endurance event across Fiji in support of Cure Kids.

The Loop Duty Free general manager Tom Byrne said having the celebrities' support is fantastic.

"They are such a busy couple and to see them give up their valuable leisure time to help Cure Kids is a real inspiration to our team. It also speaks volumes about their commitment to helping raise funds to ensure that Cure Kids can continue to fund important research into childhood diseases."

If you want to support Red Nose Day visit rednoseday.co.nz or text nose to 933.

For travelers passing through Auckland Airport, Red Noses are available in return for a $3 donation at The Loop Duty Free until 20 November.
