And action!

Reports are flooding in from various houses and offices around the country, of the exciting events and activities planned as part of the Community Week initiative.

Newcastle are holding some kind of fundraising event every week between now and June 27, including a night at the Greyhound Races in April and a Trip Down the Tyne in June.  Instore are getting active and organising a sponsored walk.  Borehamwood, Harlow and Stevenage are kicking off their fundraising with a Cake Sale for Red Nose Day. 

Reading have planned a 5-a-side football competition for June as well as a host of other events – they’re also asking visitors to the house to make a donation when they use the tea and coffee-making facilities.  Plymouth are also holding a 5-a-side football tournament and there are rumours of a rock-climbing or abseiling event too!

Football certainly seems to be a popular event and a good way to raise money – in just 2 hours Plymouth raised £140 from staff keen to be part of the competition.
