Russell Finex raises £500 for Red Nose Day 2019
Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day 2019 Russell Finex employees once again participate in various activities to raise money for the long standing charity. Having fundraised in the past through events such as bikeathons, active sports, and office olympics, this year the company held a Russell Bake-Off, alongside some games where employees were able to win treats and donate to charity.
A large variety of sweet treats were donated to the bake sale from flapjacks and cookies to brownies and cakes. On the day, 5 panel judges were chosen at random to critique all of the delicious treats based on appearance, taste and texture. Congratulations to Lisa Harris, Company Secretary at Russell Finex Ltd who came first place and won the Russell Bake-Off with her spectacular cranberry and sultana flapjacks.
Ray Singh, Managing Director at Russell Finex stated, “Fundraising for Comic Relief is always enjoyable for the company. This years activities were not only a great way to encourage culinary skills and healthy competition, but to also raise money for a just cause. Comic Relief supports millions of individuals across the globe and being a part of their journey and extended reach is incredible. Russell Finex is committed to supporting local, national and international causes and we look forward to the upcoming events planned this year.”
