Red Nose Day

Posted by on Mar 17, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

As most will know last Friday 13th March was Comic Relief Red Nose Day.

Sainsburys make a huge commitment to supporting the day and Pushpa Kasinather from 1st Choice Speakers contacted us to see if we would be interested in doing our bit for Red Nose Day in partnership with a local Sainsbury’s store in Chesham.

The plan was to have area immediately outside the store and in the morning someone else would raise money by demonstrating Zumba and in the afternoon for a donation of £1 to Comic Relief we would teach some basic circus skills, to those who wanted to have a go. Of course we agreed.

I went along to the morning Zumba session and there was a lively atmosphere. By the time our one hour long session was due to start the weather was overcast and it had got appreciably colder and as a result footfall was reduced. Undaunted we approached people with our unique offer. It was mainly adults putting their children forward and taking the opportunity of taking a photo of their youngster holding a spinning plate.

Afterwards I had a chat with the store manager and he was very pleased with our efforts. He explained that because Red Nose Day coincided so closely with Mothers Day the inside of the store had to be given over to that occasion. He said, hopefully the next time we are able to help out, we will be inside the store and so be raise even more funds for such a good cause.

Here’s to the next one.
