The partnership between Comic Relief and Ryman Stationery goes way back and, over the years they’ve raised a whopping £1.49 million for us. Needless to say, it’s been fantastic having them on board again for Red Nose Day 2013.
This Red Nose Day, not only did they sell absolutely loads of their fantastic special edition pens, featuring our very own Dinosesaurs, their fun-loving colleagues also went out of their way to do something funny for money.
With Theo Paphitis as their Chairman, this year’s Red Nose Day also coincided with Ryman celebrating 120 years on the high street and, as part of that, the 2,000-plus colleagues at over 230 stores nationwide, put in an extra special effort.
Their fundraising included everything from music concerts and endurance cycle rides, to pulling a 70 Tonne Challenger 2 Tank (!) and all in all it helped them raise an astonishing £460,699.
So, once again, a massive tanks, sorry, ‘thanks’, to everyone at Ryman Stationery!
