Hinckley & Rugby Building Society staff have raised an impressive £2,868 for Comic Relief by taking part in various activities in aid of the charity, including a ‘Jail Break’ challenge for the Society’s Chief Executive.
To raise the funds, the Society hosted a range of events for staff, including a bake sale, an amusing Red Nose and Spoon race and a comical quiz. Chief Executive, Colin Fyfe, took part in a virtual Jail Break challenge which involved him being ‘locked up’ for 24 hours and a bail placed on his release. The bail for the challenge had to be raised after Colin quickly reached the initial fundraising target. The challenge ultimately contributed well over £2,000 towards the final total, more than double the original target.
“The Comic Relief fundraiser is something that we at Hinckley & Rugby look forward to each year. Once again, Society staff have shown their enthusiasm for the charity and showed their support by getting involved, organising and participating in various activities. We’re delighted with the total amount raised and are sure it will be a huge help to the many projects Comic Relief supports.”
