Red Nose Week...

...lots of fun & silliness.

This week is set to be fun as it is Red Nose Day on Friday. Because we have lots of part-time staff who do not work Mondays or Fridays we always organise events for the whole of the week so that everyone gets a chance to take part...

Monday kicked things off with Red themed quiz sheets going on sale along with tickets where folk can guess how long it is going to take one of our staff to munch their way through a yard of Jaffa Cakes (that's 60 of the things - we measured LOL).

Tuesday was "Wear red day"...just for fun. It was lovely to see an almost rosy glow in the office yesterday because so many folk took part. We also started selling Bonus Ball numbers.

Today was the biggest event of the week - a red themed tombola. Staff had done amazingly well with all the things they had donated - the items could be red in colour/name/packaging or very tenuous..."Ready brek". We had over 100 items ranging from a kitkat to a £15 iTune download card and everything that you could think of in between.
This is what the table looked like when we had everything labled up.
We have a decorated bag and box to receive the completed quiz sheets & guess slips and they are rolling in at a fair rate of knots...
This is a closer shot of the tombola goodies before the tickets went on sale.

At 10.30 this morning it was like a swarm of locusts had decended and everyone had fun trying to find what their ticket had won them. We do our tombolas so that every ticket wins (not just numbers ending in "0" or "5") beit a kitkat or a bottle of wine or a 3 disk collection of Beatles classics - everyone who plays goes away with something. By the end of lunchtime everything had gone...

Thursday will be a day when some of my staff go round the building with the quiz sheets etc. to catch up with folk who haven't yet had a chance to make their purchase.

Friday is the Grand Jaffa Cake Munch...we know the person concerned can polish off 3 boxes (36 Jaffa cakes) pretty darn quick but it might be a bit more difficult to get through those extra 24...

Friday is also the day we are encouraging folk to wear their red noses and we are waiting to see how creative folk can be rather than just sticking them on their conks......................................

There is so much red stuff there, though I think I spy a bottle of red at the back. :) I would be praying to win that.
