In aid of Red Nose Day on 24th March, Ajuda hosted a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to raise money for the very important charity. The money that is raised on Red Nose Day funds more than 2,000 projects throughout the UK, addressing issues such as homelessness, mental health, dementia and vulnerable young people. The money also helps 11.7 million people across Africa, tackling issues such as immunisation, malaria, education, maternal health and much more. Since launching in 1985, Comic Relief has raised over £1 billion to help drive positive change using the power of entertainment.
After weeks of deliberating in the office about what we could do to raise money for this great cause, Managing Director Dawn came up with the idea of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party (we’re all mad here!).
Considering the fact that we are only a small office, we are incredibly proud that between us, we fundraised £50. Every member of staff got involved by dressing up and bringing snacks to work and a fantastic afternoon was had by all. The total amount of money raised by Comic Relief this year is a staggering £73,026,234 so far.
Here are some pictures of the day:
