RED NOSE DAY… have you got one?!
Friday 15th March is Red Nose Day and Red Nose Day is the main way in which Comic Relief raises money for charity. So, be prepared for some strange sights as Clink staff will be wearing their pyjamas with pride while they go about their general chores and they’ll have donated at least £1 for the pleasure!
But what about YOU? How can you help? Well, we’d like to make life easy for you…
WE INVITE YOU to donate £1, or more J, towards Comic Relief and in return you get to wear your pyjamas down to breakfast. PLUS, we’ll give you an extra half an hour in bed AND upgrade you to the Continental Breakfast too!
All you need to do is go and visit our friendly reception staff, drop a pound coin (or a fifty pound note if you’re feeling decidedly philanthropic) into the Nose Box and, Bob’s your uncle, you’ve got a licence to wear pyjama’s all day long! Of course, if you don’t normally wear any PJ’s we’d rather you didn’t share what nature has given you, instead just use what you’ve got – leggings, t.shirts, vests, Japanese silk dressing gowns. You know the sort of thing! Or maybe just your sheet!
So, what do you think? Are you feeling sleepy? Do you need your pyjamas? Well, that’s £1, please J
P.S. Clashbar have made a delicious but lethal big fat RED NOSE shot for Friday. £2 a pop!
The charity states that its aim is to “bring about positive and lasting change in the lives of poor and disadvantaged people, which we believe requires investing in work that addresses people’s immediate needs as well as tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice.”
One of the fundamental principles behind working at Comic Relief is the “Golden Pound Principle” where every single donated pound (£) is spent on charitable projects. All operating costs, such as staff salaries, are covered by corporate sponsors, or interest earned on money waiting to be distributed. J
