This November, staff at the One Broker Group have raised over £350 for Children in Need by taking part in a trio of activities. From a Plank Challenge, to Painting with Pennies, topped off with a Bake Sale, the month has seen the One Broker Group engage in a flurry of activities to showcase its charity spirit.
Across all 5 offices, in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire, One Broker Group staff have been challenged to 'Plank for Pudsey', holding the classic exercise pose, the Plank, for as long as possible. For those with an extra loud jangle emanating from their pockets and purses, pictures of Pudsey the Bear were coloured in with pennies by staff. The fortnight of activities was concluded with a Bake Sale.
Jo Harris, Scheme Manager of WeLoveLettings, a trading style of NWBIB in Cambridge, commented "Only for Children in Need would I hold a plank for 5 minutes straight!". Group Compliance Manager, Vivien Leeds, based in the One Broker Group’s Norwich office, KTIB, added "It’s been great fun taking part in activities, especially tasting all the delicious cakes and getting creative painting with pennies for Pudsey".
