Pudsey’s Friends Have Talent – Children In Need 2016
After the success of last year’s BBC Pudsey Bear superhero adventures, Pudsey was back to visit (once again) local nurseries, schools, hospitals and businesses for them to showcase their talent in, ‘The Big Spotacular’ event. He asked everyone to showcase their special talent to help raise money and awareness for Children in Need, and this what he got up too.
Stand Up To Cancer likes to focus on both the good and bad points of Cancer, so as a team both JMS and BWM came together for a social media campaign to do just that. Team members bared all by displaying their reasons for standing up to cancer; ‘I miss you Dad’, ‘Friends and family who suffered and those who still are’, ‘For friends I have lost’, ‘In memory for my father-in-law Don’, ‘For my family’, ‘For my Grandad RIP’, as well as messages of support such as ‘Stand Up, Save Lives’. Both teams also formed team photos with their respective messages, which can be found below.
At the end of the campaign each team member turned up to work wearing bright clothes, for an internal competition to vote for the brightest. It was a close competition with Phil Ogden from BWM winning.
It was a fun filled day, with everyone having their picture taken with props, and an internal sweepstake was held which, Alex Bland, BWMs Investment Manager won – however as soon as the money was handed to him, he handed his winnings straight back as donation to the charity. Everyone got involved with the spirt of the day and by doing so raised £287.30.
‘I am glad to have supported such an important cause; unfortunately I know only too well the suffering and pain cancer cause. I have lost friends and family due to cancer, as I know other team members have, so it felt only right that we as a company helped in the fight against cancer.’ – Tony Larkins Group Managing Director.
