Dress Down and Donate for Pratham UK

The second week of Dress Down Friday was for Pratham UK. Hopefully the majority of you were able to attend one of the informative talks by Denise or have been able to look at their website – www.pratham.org.uk. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuCJnOICnZM[/youtube] We had a great response on the day – again only a few people in the office, but a magnificent amount of money raised – the final total for the day is GBP171.25. Well done to everyone who contributed that is so much more than we ever thought we’d be collecting on a weekly basis – and goes to back up my theory that the people that work at Currencies Direct, are generous and caring individuals! Sonal Patel bought beers and Phil sold for GBP1 each at the end of the day, and we added a fun element with Rate Watch – the person closest to the GBP rate against the USD at 5.00pm was the winner and bagged half the pot collected, the rest going to Pratham. Guestimates were GBP1 each! Well done to Hulya for beating the dealers and getting the exact exchange rate, not the closest but exact – a rare achievement! This Friday we have a staggering total to beat, but I’m sure if we all pull together we will be able to raise a good amount for this weeks charity – The Food Chain http://www.foodchain.org.uk/ The Food Chain are a London based charity that for 21 years, has been changing and saving the lives of people living with HIV, by providing nourishing food and access to nutritional information to help people regain their health and stay well. This practical approach to fighting HIV includes the delivery of around 1,000 free meals every weekend in London to a diverse group of people in real need. Food is carefully prepared by an army of trained volunteers, in one of six borrowed kitchens, with each meal individually tailored to take full account of a person’s cultural and medical requirements. Wholesome, hot and cold meals containing essential nutrients are also provided for carers and family members. Andrew Davies will be coming into the office on Friday (as Denise did last week) to tell us more about The Food Chain, but please feel free to look at their website in the mean time!! I’m looking forward to reporting on our fundraising activities this week – giving really makes you feel good!!
