Ben Johnson Interiors get into the spirit of Red Nose Day
This year, to show our support for Comic Relief 2017 our team have spent the last week really going that extra mile, raising funds whilst adding some fun and laughter to the normal working day. We set ourselves a challenge to raise £500 by Friday 24 March and we’re pleased to confirm that we met this target – even surpassing it! Here’s a few of the many fundraising activities :
Some staff were locked in a head-to-head 10,000 steps a day challenge with friends, family and staff sponsoring. Competition was fierce with keen individuals stacking up 25,000 per day!
The Ben Johnson Bake-off saw some fantastic home-baked cakes submitted for the contest (No soggy bottoms permitted!). Produce was sold during the week to raise funds.
A charity thrift shop was set up to sell old stock with 100% of the profits donated to Red Nose Day.
Red fancy dress props were circulated to all office staff and project sites throughout the North including Leeds, Sheffield, York, Sunderland, Co Durham and Newcastle to raise awareness, get everyone involved and encourage text donations through social media. Even our decorators, floor fitters, designers and project managers were throwing themselves into the idea with a vengeance! (Whilst also getting on with the job of course!)
A dress-down or fancy dress day on Friday 24 March was arranged with staff paying a contribution to take part.
