Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money with friends, family or colleagues. Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and Africa. Red Nose Day in other countries.
Flubit love getting together to raise money for a great cause which is why we decided to organize a fundraising event at Flubit HQ for employees. This year we wanted to do something different, something we haven’t done before. So we made a mini-brainstorm and came up with a few great ideas!
Bake Sale! – we love cake
We asked the office to bake absolutely anything they liked or brought a cake from the shops (no one needed to know) as long as they had something to bring to the table to raise money for Comic Relief. Whenever we do a bake sale we always have loads of delicious cakes left over so this year we decided to sell to the whole building.
Cocktails and Mocktails!
If you didn’t know we are quite lucky to be based on The River Thames, so when the sun shines we all instantly become happier. Since the sun was shining we decided to sell alcoholic and non-alcoholic Strawberry Pimms to get everyone in the giving mood.
Pie Face Show Down
Our very own CEO, Bertie Stephens offered games of Pie Face Show Down for a price! Yes, that’s right we got the chance to shove a load of cream in his face, what could be more satisfying!
Waxing – I did mention before that summer is nearly here
We had 3 brave men offering body parts (leg and back) to have a strip of wax pulled off! Ouch! We have never done this before so we had a little auction to raise as much cash as we can, the highest bidder got to pull a strip of wax off.
Last but definitely not least we have 1 very brave soul have his whole head shaved if we manage to raise enough on the day!
It was a great success and we managed to raise more £80 more than we wanted and raise a massive £330 so thanks to all who contributed!
