The Air IT team was delighted to support Red Nose Day on Friday 15th March, raising a total of £100 for Comic Relief.

The team wear red for Comic Relief

Always a firm favourite in the events calendar, Air IT staff jumped at the chance to take part in this year’s Red Nose Day, which runs every other year in aid of Comic Relief.

Employees from all departments got involved by wearing red, taking a lucky chance with Comic Relief’s cupcake sweepstake, and getting competitive in our “Pin the Red Nose on Tech Tom” game. 2nd Line Service Desk Engineer, Marie, had even knitted an especially cute googly-eyed red nose for the occasion!

Our day of fundraising was kicked off with Comic Relief’s cupcake sweepstake, when we were challenged to pick comedian Katherine Ryan’s favourite cupcake from a choice of 30. The mouth-watering guessing game was a success, with more than half the company taking part for the chance to win.

2nd Line Service Desk Engineer, Richard, was delighted to have correctly guessed the winning cake as the Marshmallow Meringue (sounds delicious!), pocketing a sweet £30 and another £30 being donated to the cause.

The fun continued into the afternoon and things got a little competitive (okay, a lot competitive!) when we took on an old favourite with an Air IT twist… Pin the Red Nose on Tech Tom!

Billing Manager, Anxhela, was crowned the champion after beating colleagues – including Managing Director, James, and Service Delivery Manager, Paige – and getting her red nose the closest to Tech Tom’s.

Anxhela’s prize was generously donated by the company so that all the money raised by the game could go towards the charity.
