Red Nose Day fever has come to Morningside, with colleagues embracing a Disney theme to raise money for charity.
Colleagues took inspiration from a whole host of movies and shows, from Alice in Wonderland and Toy Story, to High School Musical and Star Wars.
We had a White Queen, Cheshire Cat, Tweedledum & Tweedledee, A Mad Hatter, a March Hare, a Queen of Hearts and even a Chewbacca.
Everyone who took part made a donation to charity. Colleagues also made further donations to participate in a charity quiz and a sweepstake to guess celebrity Katheryn Ryan’s favourite cupcake.
In total Morningside’s colleagues raised a fantastic £171 for Comic Relief!
At Morningside our mission is to ‘make quality healthcare an affordable and accessible reality throughout the world’. So Comic Relief is a particularly special charity for us because all donations support vulnerable people and communities in the UK and internationally.
