Children in Need

Silly hats and swear jars!

Melon ‘did something different’ this year for Children in Need. For 5 days any form of bad language was fined with a sliding scale of punishment - some words were particularly costly! Whilst the swear box was the clear winner for stumping up cash, not that we’re a foul mouthed lot or anything, ‘wear a silly hat day’ proved extremely popular, good fun and strangely quite liberating for some.

Other fundraising activities included the Pudsey scratch-a-square-to-match game and donating extra lunch money in exchange for a fish ‘n’ chips artery busting, carbohydrate fest. We raised a tidy sum for Children in Need and had a laugh in the process!
