Children In Need 2015

Dressing up for Children in Need

We are serious about fundraising. Well, maybe ‘serious’ isn’t the right word, but we do care a lot about raising money for charities, such as Children in Need. This year, instead of our usual ‘dress in pyjamas’, we decided to dress as our childhood heroes, or, given that it was Friday 13th November, as supernatural.

A Feast on Friday

As well as dressing up, we brought in food that either we’d bought or made for the occasion. Costume‑wearers were suggested to pay £5 to partake in the feast, or £10 for those that hadn’t dressed up. Almost everyone did indeed dress up (the one who didn’t shall not be named!) and we managed to raise a fantastic £130 for Children in Need.

A Curry in Kenilworth

Many of us ended the day by descending on Kenilworth for a post‑work curry. To make things more interesting, the majority of attendees left their fineries on and attended the meal in full motley. It was a fantastic end to the day, and indeed the week, and was enjoyed by all.
