Blue Frontier Does Children in Need

What do cake, dressing up, pink and green hair dye and doughnuts all have in common?

These are all the elements that Blue Frontier bought together to raise money for our 'Children in Need' fun day at our Salisbury HQ.

While our staff may know a thing or two about the digital domain, we had no idea how talented they were at baking – or dressing up!

While some staff opted for face glitter and bright colours, the directors, Luke, Marc, Mike and James took fundraising to the next level with hair dyeing, face painting and unusual attire! A line-up of the Blue Frontier team eagerly awaited Marc’s arrival.

Marc didn’t disappoint. A chiffon scarf set off a turquoise and pink outfit which was nicely rounded off with a silver and gold sequined bag. The result: a fashion tour-de-force:

Meanwhile, Luke and Mike were dyeing their hair with colours normally reserved for extravagant weekend parties.

And James went for full on Pudsey...

“‘Our team really pulled out all the stops to deliver a fun-packed day of fundraising. From cake-baking to dressing up; from paper planes to dangling doughnuts, we all had an amazing time raising money for a great cause.’”

James Fry, Managing Director, Blue Frontier

A perilous addition to this year's fundraising included a boulevard of dangling doughnuts. An ordeal which would have been sure to add at least a few inches to the waistline of any intrepid Indiana Jones. Staff set off blindfolded in search of elusive doughnuts, and glitter ended up everywhere. A huge thanks to everyone who baked a cake, took on the doughnut boulevard or dressed up to raise money. We'd also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has kindly donated. So far we have raised...
