Children in need Vision is that every child in the UK has a childhood which is:

Last month I was busy organizing a fun day to raise money for children in need. Originally I was going to do a single event on the day which was a sponsor silence, but it got thrown out after I asked about it, however it wasn’t all that bad. They ask me to organize a fun day for the whole store. I accepted the challenge and realize what I have done and admitted ‘I haven’t done anything this big before’ after talking to my fellow colleagues and assembled a team, we drawn up a plan to aid us through it. One by one we tackled the list, posters went u

p, sweep stake started merchandise arrived and selling. Everything was going to plan except one small thing on the week of the actual day I had to go to Grimsby for training. I left the group knowing it’s almost done. As I was up their doubts pour into my mind, will the group complete it? Will it be a flop or hit? Shall I ignore or accept advice? These questions kept coming back and forth into my mind but I knew it was in a good position at least I thought it was. When I returned to the group on the eve of the day my fears were becoming reality. So against the advice which was don’t come in. I came in and polished it off, and coordinated the day. The cakes were made and everything was going to plan and the leg waxing went down a treat. But there was one small problem my mental strength collapse and my head was throbbing like it was going to explode. Lucky I made full recovery and amazing we raised over £900 for t

he children in need. Everyone congratulated me for the success however it was ‘the store raised it we all did it!’
my mother said to do ‘hope you make that the last one, it nearly made you ill’
I replied ‘if you see me do that again you have my permission to shoot me’ but the gauntlet has been throw down, it will be interesting who picks it up 😉
