Realm Race to Raise: Day 2

Posted on 13/6/2016 by Katherine Memery

Day 2 – Monday 13th June

Despite the bleak weather we’ve had all weekend and the hangover we’re experiencing from the disappointment that was England Vs. Russia, some of  the Realm team have bullishly gone about their business on ‘Day 2’ of our fundraising race.

Trainee Recruitment Consultant, Matt has seized the initiative early on having come to work bright and early this morning equipped with a deliciously rich and tasty raspberry and white chocolate cake. He’s thus far managed to raise £13, which at this early stage is enough to shoot him into a healthy lead.

With most of the Realm team still undecided as to how they’re going to raise the all-important funds required, Matt’s success in appealing to people’s appetite might inspire some more baking. Other ideas floating around the office today have included some sort of bizarre closed-bid auction for tat and an open mic challenge!

As things stand:

Matt £13

Chris £0

Dan £0

Duane £0

Joe £0

Katherine £0

Total £13
