£340...

...achieved by a week of fun & silliness **not to be sniffed at - get it - "sniffed at" - noses - okay, don't groan too loudly LOL**

These are just a few photos to show how some folk in the office decided to round off the week...

Meet Dave: -
Dave is my boss and can normally be found 'suited & booted' - just a slight change from his normal dress sense LOL

This is Chris: -
Chris recently was provided with a new chair via O/Health and for some reason they sent a red one (our normal office scheme is blue) - as you can guess it certainly sticks out. Chris, bless him, took my suggestion to heart about his chair having a nose of its own - he bought it a 'car nose'.

Say Hi to Anjani: -
She was dressed 'head to toe' in red - even her coat was red.

Now this is Darren: -
Darren had volunteered to munch his way through a 'Yard of Jaffa Cakes' - a total of 5 packs/60 cakes. Poor Darren arrived this morning feeling very much under the weather as it looks like he is developing a really bad cold...but all said and done, he was still 'up for it'.

Just after midday (once we had sorted out stop-watch facilities and ended up with 2 time keepers) - in front of a fair sized crowd - he was off...

Armed with a glass of water he got stuck in and munched his way very steadily through all 60 Jaffa Cakes - the photo was taken just as he was about to start on pack 4.

I think a lot of folk were a bit optimistic with their guesses and as he hit the 10 min mark - folk asked could they buy more tickets to have new guesses...

The total of 60 Jaffa Cakes was polished off in 20mins 17.8secs.

For those wondering - no he wasn't sick afterwards and even we were surprised that he wasn't bouncing off the ceiling due to all that sugar (and approx 2760 cals) - however, the combination of sugar and lots of water did result in a lot of trips to the 'Little boys room'.

Folk really got into the spirit of things this week and with the grotty weather and rotten news that has faced all of us I think it brought a little cheer into the workplace...and £340 more for Comic Relief........................

Hopefully the vitamin c in the orange bit of the Jaffa cakes were good for his cold!!
