If you’d stopped by the Code offices last Friday and glanced around, you might well have seen Wonder Woman leading a morning stand up, a Thunderbird manning the phones on the new business desk, or even Superman brewing up in the kitchen.
But it’s not because we’ve had a major personnel overhaul (though, let’s face it, if Superman did come in for an interview, he’d probably get the job…) – we were just getting into the spirit of Cash for Kids Superhero Day.
Plenty of Computerlovers indulged in a spot of dress up for the day, but the winner of the ‘Best Dressed’ trophy inevitably went to Lola a.k.a. Batdog:
Those who didn’t want to don full fancy dress could take part in our fundraising face painting session. We also ran a silent auction where the top prizes included a spa day at Malmaison and afternoon tea at Hotel Gotham, and a highly-competitive pub quiz (big congratulations to the winning team “Pants outside Trousers”).
In total, we managed to raise over £1,000 for When You Wish Up a Star. Massive props to our fundraising team Claire K., Alex, Elise, Amy R., Harriet and Louise for making the day such a success, and good on all the Computerlovers who dug deep.
