What a fun week we’ve had here at White Dove Garages for BBC Children in Need.
We’ve spent the last few days getting creative, and trying our best to raise money for this year’s Children in Need.
Our Marketing Executive, Jessica, came up with some challenges. The challenges and activities we did were;
Cake Off – Bake Sale
Mollie, Mat, and Simon's Wife spent their weekends baking away in order to make sure we had the best Bake Sale ever! There were Caramel Shortbread's, Brownies, Welshcakes, Chocolate Cake, and Crispy Cakes. We raised a whopping £70 from our Bake Sale alone!
Staff Member Challenge – Can they go without?
Our Staff Member Challenges (all chosen internally) were extremely funny and creative! Some were even so challenging that our Staff gave up! Some of the fun challenges our Staff had to go without were;
- Alex couldn't sit down for the whole day
- Ryan wasn't allowed on his Phone
- Jamie wasn't allowed to drink Milk
- Dean couldn't have a cup of tea all day
- Darren wasn't allowed to speak for the duration of his shift
- Digital Merchandiser, Mat, couldn't say the word Keys
- Digital Marketing Exec, Jess, couldn't use her Mobile Phone
- Chris had to sit down all day
- Booking's Adviser, Mollie, had to go without saying her name for the whole day!
Yellow Day – Wear something Yellow
To honour Pudsey Bear, we all wore something Yellow on Wednesday and donated £1 to do so!
Pudsey Bear Annual Duck Race
At White Dove, we're all about team work. We entered the BBC Facebook Pudsey Bear Duck Race and our internal staff took part. We did have a winner too, the names James... 'James Pond'.
White Dove Quiz – Who Knows Best?
The best activity was kept til last! We put our Managers, Sales, and Accounts teams to the test with our challenging SEAT V ŠKODA quiz. There was no cheating allowed!
The activities and challenges created were designed so that White Dove Staff could have fun whilst raising money for a fantastic cause! Because of everyone's eagerness to help, we raised a fantastic £300 for BBC's Children in Need. Click here to see how the money we've raised can help those Children in Need.
Well done to everyone at White Dove SEAT and ŠKODA who took part. We had an excellent week, full on fun!
