Quantum Pharmaceutical swaps lab coats for fancy dress to raise funds for Red Nose Day
The staff at Quantum Pharmaceutical swapped their shirts, ties and lab coats for red noses and fancy dress in an effort to raise funds for this year's Red Nose Day appeal .
Quantum Pharmaceutical employs 245 people from all divisions at its Burnopfield headquarters and many of them showed their support by turning up to work in their favourite fancy dress costumes and donning iconic red noses to 'do something funny for money'.
Best dressed accolade was hotly contested, with Wendy Greener from the procurement department turning heads as legendary diva Dame Edna. Highlights also included Tom Helliwell as Disco Dave and Richard 'Richie' Gray who dressed up as mean green superhero the Hulk. The HR department stole the show for group outfits with their full Spice Girls band, with high kicks from Sporty and Baby handing out lollipops to make it all the more realistic.
Emma Treeby from Customer Service took the medal for trendiest costume, dressed as Alan from The Hangover, sporting full beard, aviator sunglasses and even a baby (doll). An honourable mention went to Quantum Pharma Managing Director Andrew Scaife who showed everyone he’s game for a laugh by dressing up as the Honey Monster.
Big hearted staff members each made a donation to Red Nose Day and this amount was then matched by Quantum Pharmaceutical taking the total amount raised to £567.
"We can always count on our staff members to go the extra mile for charity and this year's Red Nose Day was no exception. Comic Relief is a fantastic appeal which helps transform the lives of millions of people living in Africa but also makes a difference to those closer to home. I would like to say a huge thank you to all of our generous staff members who got involved and dug deep and helped us with the fundraising," enthused Alison Doering, Head of Group Marketing and Communications at parent company, the Quantum Pharma Group.
