Since Red Nose Day is coming up we had a think about how we could contribute to a cause that we feel passionate about. We decided to pick The Brain Tumour Charity, as we felt they are making a real difference daily to people with brain tumours and their families. The Brain Tumour Charity fund pioneering research to increase survival, and raise awareness of the symptoms of a brain tumours. Plus they provide support for everyone affected to improve their quality of life. Additionally, due to Red Nose Day coming up we have also decided to give the money we make from that day to them as we feel the work they do positively affects a variety of people in need.

Here are a few things we are doing soon to help raise money for these charities…

Red Nose Day bake sale

This Friday we are hosting a bake sale at our studio. We are advertising the sale through posters made by Ellen and Matt (our designers) around our building. We intend to sell them all, however, we wouldn’t mind if something is left over for us to try!

National Walk to Work Day

On the 7th of April we welcome the National Walk To Work Day, initially introduced to encourage people to be mindful of their mental health. However, since quite a few of our staff live over an hour away (in a car) we decided to do a twist on the day. Instead, we are hiring a treadmill for the office and we are going to calculate the amount of miles each of our journeys would take collectively, and work together to get through the miles.

We feel this is going to be a great way to raise some money for The Brain Tumour Charity!

Yorkshire 3 Peaks

Here at Little we are an active bunch and decided there would be no better way to raise money than to walk the 3 peaks in Yorkshire. The peaks included are Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres). This is a 24-mile long route which includes a 5,200ft ascent. We have an aim to do it in less than 12 hours as you then receive a certificate!
