BT has been supporting BBC Children in Need since it started over 30 years ago. It raises money to help change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK and is one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, culminating in the appeal night which will take place on Friday 15 November 2013. Teams across the UK are already kicking off their fundraising ideas by holding onesie days and cake sales.
Adastral Park has always played a big part in supporting the appeal and last year raised over £3,500 through your fundraising efforts and generous donations. This year, we’d like to beat that! There’s already a programme of events planned throughout the week, including:
- a week long FIFA tournament on Playstation 3 between first year graduates and apprentices, running every lunchtime in the Hub with the final taking place on Friday 15th in Antares G05 at 12:30.
- coffee and cakes delivered to your desk
- raffle with many prizes including a giant Pudsey and much more
- tug of war between Grads and Apprentices – the winners will take on the Adastral Park fire team
- the One Minute Mystery Row – a rowing challenge in the Hub Wednesday 13th – the closest person to the distance set by our mystery rower in 1 minute
- guess the balloons in the car
- don’t miss The Adastral Park Singers in the coffee lounge lunchtime on Friday 15th
BodyTalk Gym – GIANT Pudsey bear lift!
The Adastral Park gym has set a massive challenge to lift a 100 ton Pudsey over the week leading up to CiN, then on Friday 15 November, a team of 5 will attempt to lift a 50 ton Pudsey bear! This is a team relay event where each member lifts a 20kg barbell from the floor to overhead (clean and press) for 20 reps until the 50 tons is reached – which should take them an estimated 2.5 hours! They also have a giant Pudsey bear for their prize draw – please drop by the gym for a ticket and show your support. Donations towards this event can also be made via Gym Bear Lift.
If you have your own fundraising ideas or would like to get involved, we’d like to hear from you, so contact Ali Howard or Lisa Perkins or visit the website for more information. If you’re unable to get involved, how about visiting the My Donate website and as always, we’d like to see your fundraising pics which you can upload on our Flickr page.
So, in the words of Sir Terry – “please dig deep”! Your support is vital and much appreciated.
