Do Something Funny For Money!

Eager to live up to the motto of this year's Comic Relief/Red Nose Day event and of course help my school raise lots of money for a good cause, I decided to do a few funny things in aid of charity.
I have long wanted to learn and perform in a version of 'Thriller' and I managed to persuade several colleagues and students to join me. It took me a couple of hours to teach myself the choreography and then a few rehearsals to teach to others. We were the final act at the charity concert and I'm proud to say that we brought the house down. (I also sang Peggy Lee's 'Fever' with another teacher, sorry no pictures and definitely no video footage!)
Not content with the effort made on Thursday evening, I made the decision to go to work on Friday wearing pyjamas! I taught a full day's lessons wearing them, much to the amusement of colleagues and students alike. I have to say, that I felt incredibly comfortable and think that this may well be the way forward in dressing for work!
On an important note, I managed to raise some money for charity and help make a difference to a few people. I'm able to accept post-event sponsorship, so if you feel you are able to give anything send me an e-mail and I'll point you in the direction of my donation page.
