Red Nose Report

Well with stories and photos flooding in from all across the country, you can expect a lot of updates this week and next.  Let’s start by looking at what everyone got up to for Red Nose Day – we have some great photos!

Birmingham started a day early, to maximise the number of people involved – looks like they had some fun.  Newcastle got busy with the cakes, as did Manchester who went cake-mad.  And somebody said Lynn Henshaw’s cakes were only useful for doorstoppers…

The Bristol Group had a cake sale, guess the value of the coins in the jar and guess the number of sweets in the jar.  Kelly Leech attended the Southern Regional Meeting in her PJs – managers had a choice of wearing PJs or donating £10, so quite a lot of money was raised there!  There’s a rumour that Nigel Wren wore his pyjamas but we have no photographic evidence…

Wednesburyhad both cakes and fancy dress for their Red Nose Day – check out those costumes!  Wakefield House had cakes, a sweepstake and a brain-teaser.  Overall between all locations £2,359 was raised for Red Nose Day, so well done everyone.
