While we do have our own <a title="Tony Rendall Triathlete" href="http://www.reidsteel why not try here.com/blog/2013/09/30/from-draughtsman-to-triathlete/” target=”_blank”>successful athletes at REIDsteel, we thought we would take Sport Relief a little easy this year.
Our red themed “non-uniform” day brought out the colourful side to some of our draughtsmen’s personalities and the whole office looked tickled pink or red in this case dressed in their own hues of red.
By spending the day in the red and entering the Sport Relief official “Pick a Sweaty Celebrity” competition we raised £106. Congratulations to the winner, Lee Stevens who wisely chose Pixie Lott as the “sweatiest celebrity”.
Lee commented on the day, “Having a child of my own and watching the poor children of the World living as they do brings tears to my eyes every Sport Relief or Comic Relief Day. The easiest thing I can do is dress up and look daft for a day to help out in a minuscule way. The morning commute to work on my bicycle raised a few chuckles for oncoming drivers, hopefully for the bright red spiky wig I was wearing!”
Our wonderful resident baker, Shipping Manager Ana supplied our 120 staff with a delicious selection of cakes raising £44.14.
We’re no Davina McCall or David Beckham, but we’re glad that we could contribute to the total raised on the broadcast night of £51,242,186.
