Together and Sale Sharks tackle Red Nose Day 2017

28 March 2017

As part of our fundraising for Comic Relief we teamed up with Sale Sharks, with colleagues challenged to take on the premiership rugby professionals in a passing challenge.

All in the name of fun and fundraising, the Sale Sharks mascot was also on hand to cheer everyone on and award the prizes to the best passers, with winners receiving tickets to see Sale Sharks take on the Worcester Warriors at their next game.

For those not familiar with the scrum, there was a whole host of further fundraising activity throughout Red Nose Day at Lake View, including a Countdown competition with a previous champion from the TV gameshow, plus a raffle, tombola, cake sales, joke booth, fancy dress competition, comedy quiz and more.

We raised £3000 in just one day, with all the money going to Comic Relief. In the evening we acted as a Red Nose Day call centre, with over 100 colleagues volunteering to take donation calls for Comic Relief.

Kevin Fisher, our HR director, said: ”This is the second time we’ve acted as a call centre for Comic Relief, and we’re really proud of everyone who gave up their time to make it possible. It was a great night for all involved and we’re delighted with the amount of donations we took on behalf of such a great cause. This followed our own day of fundraising which saw a wonderful sense of team spirit across the business and a fantastic visit from Sale Sharks, who were great sports.”
