Fundraising for Kingfisher

So, a dev wearing a pink onesie walks backwards into a bar…

There’s never a long wait at Windsor Works for a fun day, and this time it was in aid of Kingfisher Special School. Largely organised by Support Admin Kat, familiar with the school by way of her partner, who is a teacher there, the event was a successful fundraiser. Ever vigilant in our search for an excuse for cake, we of course arranged a bake sale and also a guaranteed-prize raffle, besides an optional £2 donation for non-uniform (I won a box of UNO cards and a spinning top. Not bad).

The main source of mayhem on Kingfisher Day was Kat’s magnet fishing ‘lucky’ dip, which actually ended up being unlucky for most people. Most of the fish caught were unfortunately office-related forfeits, some of the harshest punishments being dished out to Jeff, who had to funk-dance to his next destination every time he left his desk, and Apprentice Ryan, who was given the challenge of starting a spontaneous group rendition of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight.’ Probably the person who suffered the cruellest fate was Craig ‘Fodders’ Foden, who won a pink onesie in the raffle and was forced to don it for the rest of the day, as well as receiving the painful forfeit of having to walk backwards everywhere he went. It was all for a good cause!

In the end, we raised around £150.00 for Kingfisher, a school who do incredibly important work, and had fun while doing it. Well, probably not Fodders.
