Biogen raise funds for Comic Relief
Renewable energy specialists Biogen raised over £600 for Comic Relief - enough to pay for 9 children in Uganda to attend school for an entire year.
Staff based at Bedford and Ludlow along with their Group Bedfordia colleagues at Milton Parc, took part in all manner of red-nose-inspired silliness to raise £667 on Red Nose Day. Fund raising activities included email bingo, a quiz, a cake sale and a cake-eating derby. Highlight of the day saw colleagues pay for Chief Executive Richard Barker and Financial Controller Matt Petch to be their slaves for the day by washing their cars, making tea and cleaning muddy wellies. Anneke Street, Accounts Assistant and a member of the Comic Relief team, said, "It was such good fun, everyone took part in some shape or form. Best of all though is that we have all helped make a difference to a child's life by helping them access education - something we take for granted in the UK."
