Harry Potter, Where’s Wally? and a jolly court jester were amongst the imaginative costumes on parade at our fancy dress fundraiser.
Donations and a raffle raised an impressive total of £316.50 for Children in Need.
Employees shared a complimentary slap up lunch, and later took part in a raffle.
Raffle prizes included champagne, donated by Hays Recruitment, M&S vouchers from Search, a Majestic classic selection of wine, gifted by branding and digital agency Seven Seven, a set of headphones donated by branded merchandise and print company Pink Sheep and a FitBit3, donated by Suresite Group.
Suresite Group has raised money every year for Children in Need since 2007.
Janine Wilson, people development manager, Suresite Group, said: “Charity fundraising has always been really important to Suresite Group. We raise money for a number of projects, both locally and nationally.
“Our fancy dress fundraiser for Children in Need was a lot of fun and there was a great atmosphere in the office all day. Everyone should be very proud of the £316 we raised.”
The first BBC Children In Need telethon was broadcast in 1980 and presented by the crack team of Terry Wogan, Sue Lawley and Esther Rantzen. The now iconic Pudsey Bear made his first appearance in 1985.
