Employees in Newcastle, United Kingdom participate in Comic Relief Telethon on Red Nose Day 2011.
On the United Kingdom’s Red Nose Day, all throughout the country, people “do something funny for money” to raise the funds for Comic Relief, a national charity that helps change countless lives across the country.
This March 18, hundreds of employees in Newcastle helped the cause by participating in a day full of hilarious site activities which culminated in their support of Comic Relief’s bi-annual telethon during which employees took calls for pledges totaling more than $143,000 (100,000£) in donations! This money, when added to more than $1,400 (1,000£) in employee donation throughout the day made the day a success by any measure.
This March, our teammates in the Newcastle, United Kingdom participated in Red Nose Day 2011, a day organized by Comic Relief to help raise the funds needed to drive positive change in the lives of so many.
