Tuesday, 22nd February - Comic Relief
Gratuitous Blackadder clip
Today's charity is Comic Relief - I wrote a press release for a brave young man who has decided to give up talking for the day. I wish I could manage this!!
SSSSSSSSHHH! HARWOODS SALES EXECUTIVE PLEDGES SILENCE FOR COMIC RELIEF!
A talkative sales executive at Harwoods Renault in Wootton has pledged silence for a day to raise money for the Comic Relief Appeal on Friday, 18th March.
Richard Harris who works at the dealership, is well-known amongst his colleagues for being something of a chatterbox and was challenged by his team to remain silent all day. The only exception is talking to customers or answering the phone.
In return, his colleagues will sponsor him to raise money for the forthcoming Comic Relief appeal.
He said: “I ran the Great South Run last year in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society, but I have a feeling that being silent all day is going to be much harder! Working in sales involves a lot of talking to people, so keeping schtum is going to make the day very interesting!”
His boss, Paul Hunt, sales director at Harwoods Renault, added: “Richard talks quite a lot, so we thought this would really put him to the test. Although he’s allowed to talk to customers, we’ll be providing him with a notepad to communicate! In return, we will chip in to raise as much as possible for Comic Relief which is a great charity which helps people in need all over the world.”
