Every year since 1980 The BBC has held its annual event of fund raising for Children in Need in aid of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
This year Playle & Partners wanted to get involved and do their bit to raise money for them and we thought it would be a great idea to combine our money raising efforts with a team walk out in the fresh air during our lunch hour.
With the promise of cake at the finish line a good number of us all paid £2.00 each to join in the 45 minute walk which left the office at 1.00pm for Avery Hill Park and consisted of 22 members of staff and 3 of their delightful dogs who were just as eager as us to walk for charity.
We also invited everyone to donate £2.00 to “dress down on Friday” and were delighted that almost everyone was able to join in and come to work in their Friday best and help a worthy cause at the same time.
Altogether we raised an amazing £147.00 on the day – a big thank you to everyone for entering into the spirit and achieving this great result for Children in Need.
