Supporting BBC Children in Need
Like many regional offices of Box-it, we’ve been doing all sorts of things to support BBC Children in Need here at Box-it Central. With Pudsey ears to the ready, Friday 18 November was certainly a day with a difference!
From baking sweet and savoury delights to plank-off competitions, and even some notoriously difficult mannequin challenges (the latest craze where you have to freeze in a mannequin’s pose), we were doing all we could to raise funds for the charity in between our normal daily document management tasks.
Special congratulations to the winners of our baking competitions: Sarah, Becky and Sadia – yes, your cakes, loaves and savouries were delicious! Thanks also to our colleagues who donated money to have a taste of them. And well done to Steve, our plank-off winner setting a time of 4 mins 2 seconds.
We truly got into the Children in Need spirit and encouraged everyone to wear something Pudsey related (ranging from onesies to nighties!) and decorated our Box-it Central office with bright yellow balloons and Pudsey stickers.
We’re delighted to say that while the grand total raised by Box-it UK has yet to be announced, our team at Central raised £135 to support Children in Need. Director, Emlyn, kindly matched this amount bringing Central’s grand total to £270.
Thank you to everyone who took part and to all those who supported us in our activities.
