We did it! Our Red Nose Day 24 Hour Joke-a-thon for Comic Relief is complete!

We successfully told a joke every 30 minutes for 24 hours, but we couldn’t have done it without your help! We received 24 fantastic joke submissions from staff past and present, friends, family and customers! Your votes have been counted and verified and we are thrilled to announce that the winner of the £25 Grays Gift Card is Margaret Lord with the joke submitted by her son Thomas, age 10; “Did you hear about the claustrophobic astronaut? He just needed a little space”.

But our Joke-a-thon wasn’t just about a competition, it was to raise money for Red Nose Day. We had so much fun dressing in silly outfits to make people laugh (hands up if you came in to store and were slightly creeped out my the crazy ladies dressed in red) and raising money for Comic Relief. As of Wednesday 20th March, we have raised £62.54 from our Red Nose Day 24 Hour Joke-a-thon and the donations are still coming in! If you haven’t had chance to donate yet, you can still do so here.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that got involved in our Red Nose Day 24 Hour Joke-a-thon, and as a token of our appreciation, we give you an outtakes reel - please feel free to laugh at our expense, we sure did watching it back!
