Sportsworld don their 'sportswear' for Sport Relief!
On Friday 19th March (the start of the official Sport Relief weekend) the Sportsworld office donned their sportswear to raise money for Sport Relief.
The 'strict' brief, all in aid of charity of course, was to either wear your sports clothes to work for the day or to come as your sporting hero. How exhilarating!
The team did not disappoint! Amusing sights included a deep sea diver in wetsuit and flippers, our female equestrian 'star' in jodhpurs, boots and spurs (she lost her horse on the way), Andre Agassi, Valentino Rossi in full leathers, helmet and accompanying shades, cricketers, footballers, tennis players and basically all other sports in-between. The only 'rules' were pay £2 for the privilege or £4 if forgotten (and yes, there were some!).
A cake sale, baked with love by members of the team, raised more money (if not calories) and a company sweepstake on the Cheltenham Gold Cup which ran during the afternoon. What a sporting bunch we are!
At the end of the day we raised an impressive £110 which will be spent by Comic Relief to help transform the lives of poor and vulnerable people, both at home and across the world’s poorest countries.
It will also go towards Thomson Sport's fundraising target to raise £500,000 for Sport Relief. As our sister company and official Sport Relief sponsor for 2010, the whole TUI Group are pulling together to rise to the challenge.
