Callcredit celebrates Comic Relief total

Colleagues at Callcredit raise more than £1,000 in a fundraising-filled Friday

Callcredit Information Group has raised a fantastic £1,075 for Comic Relief after a Red Nose Day packed full of fundraising antics.

Staff at all Callcredit's offices across the UK donated money to dress down for the day as well wearing this year's monstrous red noses. Some even took dressing down one step further sporting wacky hair styles, wigs and fancy dress to encourage colleagues to contribute to the cause.

But it wasn't just people who were wearing the red noses; staff baked Comic Relief cupcakes each dressed up with their own red noses to help raise funds. Competitions took place throughout the day to boost donations further, with sweepstakes and guessing games helping to rake in the pounds.

John McAndrew, Chief Executive of Callcredit Information Group said, "Charitable fundraising is really important to Callcredit colleagues and Comic Relief is a great opportunity for us all to have some fun, whilst helping a fantastic cause. It was great to see colleagues across the country really getting involved in fundraising and we're delighted to be able to donate more than £1,000 to Comic Relief."

For the rest of the year Callcredit's colleagues will turn their fundraising efforts back to this year's charity partner, the British Heart Foundation.
