BUSINESSES

Let’s bring some fun to the office for the day! Even though the original concept for Heroes Day was aimed at Primary Schools, there is no reason why business and organisations, in both the public and private sector cannot that part. After all, Goodman Masson, the UK’s largest financial recruitment company broke the world record for the most amount of people dressed as Superman to raise funds for Help for Heroes.

Some organisations may not want or be able to let staff dress as their hero for the day. As a compromise, why not have a dress down day instead, perhaps sell the Help for Heroes wristbands and pin badges. It may also be a great time to get everyone together to run some internal fundraising events like a cake sale, a raffle or go even bigger with a cycle challenge on a static bike, or rowing machine challenge in the office inspired by staff’s favourite sportsmen and women, the opportunities are endless…

Robin Hollington:
“Personally I’d love to see David Cameron go to Westminster dressed as Zoro or perhaps Robin Hood, with Nick Clegg as Friar Tuck and Ed Miliband as Little John!”
