Umbrella.co.uk staff are fundraising for charity with a Halloween 'dress up' day in the office...There's some scarily good costumes, giant spiders and zombies creeping about......
If you are a nurse, a prison officer, a farmer or you work in any profession that requires you to wear a recognisable uniform then it might be tempting to splatter some fake blood over your uniform and use that as a Halloween costume this weekend.
Lots of people hate dressing up for Halloween, and if you are one of them then you will know how appealing it can be to go for the lowest-cost, lowest-effort option available. But did you know that if you do have to wear a uniform to work then you can get a tax refund for cleaning and maintaining it.
Umbrella.co.uk staff got into the ‘spirit’ of Halloween today fundraising in aid of East Cheshire Hospice. Staff dressed up in their scariest costumes, sold spooky themed cakes, played Tombs of Doom and held a fancy dress and creepiest desk design competition.
Neil Armitage, Operations Director, said: “We are very proud of the commitment to fundraising shown by our employees. Their enthusiasm, creativity and generosity never fails to amaze me. There’s always something fun going on at umbrella.co.uk”.
Take a look at the amazing effort put in by the Umbrella.co.uk team towards the Halloween office decorations, spooky fancy dress costumes and terribly tasty cakes.
Umbrella.co.uk's spooky fun raised over £300.00 for East Cheshire Hospice. Staff made such a tremendous effort dressing up and baking cakes, the Directors have generously doubled the fundraising total!
East Cheshire Hospice is a haven of care and calm for people facing challenges at the end of their lives who live in the communities of Buxton, Congleton, High Legh, High Peak, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Poynton, Wilmslow and the villages and hamlets in between.
