Every year Comic Relief raises millions of pounds through two major fundraising campaigns: Red Nose Day and Sport Relief. With the aim ‘to drive positive change through the power of entertainment’, hundreds of thousands of people pull together to raise money for charity. This evening will see a huge night of entertainment where the BBC gives celebrities and comedians an entire evening to entertain the nation whilst urging them to donate generously.
Following on from last year’s success, we decided to carry out our very own SilverDoor auction and do something funny for money. With offers up for auction such as a homemade Egyptian dinner for 3, horse riding lessons, an extra day’s holiday and even Principal Account Manager, Pedro Simes, ironing your shirt every day for a week, we managed to raise over £1000 for Comic Relief.
We’ve all had a great time today raising money for Comic Relief. Doing something funny for money is definitely entertaining; there’s nothing quite like paying for one of your colleague’s to wash your car in their underwear
