Over the last three weeks members of the officebroker.com team have been hitting the road and visiting many of the office space providers we work alongside. Today it was the turn of Sales Manager Chris Mapp and Consultant Gerard Richards.
First on their list was a trip to Portal Business Centres in Warrington, a previous winner of our Business Centre of the Month Award, in order to take a look around the offices and spend some time with Sallie and her team.
So as they parked up and made their way into the building, ready to be shown around and see everything the Business Centre has to offer, imagine their surprise when instead of being greeted by Sallie they came face-to-face with Boy George, Bet Lynch, the Blues Brothers and a host of other colourful characters.
But wait, before you all rush to Warrington armed with your autograph book, the business centre has not been unexpectedly taken over by celebrities and fictional characters – Instead it was a fundraising effort in aid of Comic Relief.
Launched in 1985 to bring aid to a famine stricken Ethiopia, Comic Relief has gone on to raise over ┬ú650m and change the lives of millions of people across 76 countries. In addition to the aid it helps to deliver internationally, Comic Relief has also funded over 12,500 projects here in the UK.
Having donned their costumes, wigs and make-up for the day, the Portal team has clearly entered into the spirit of the event – approaching Comic Reliefs request to do ΓÇ£Something Funny for MoneyΓÇ¥ with a clear enthusiasm and raising over ┬ú160.00 in the process ΓÇô Good Work!
On behalf of everyone at officebroker.com we congratulate them for their contributionΓÇª we are also left wondering where Bet Lynch got her shoes from?
