Forklift Truck supplier Briggs Equipment Directors raise money for BBC Childeren In Need

The "Directors’ Job Swap" was part of a week of fundraising to help the appeal. Briggs also hosted a fancy dress ‘Celebrity Car Wash’ on Friday, November 20.

Staff swapped their daily activities to work with the community and dressed up as their favourite stars to clean the cars of nearly 100 motorists. All the money raised throughout the week was then matched and donated by the company.

The public met the likes of Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and the Pink Ladies all using pressure washers supplied by Nilfisk. Staff also kept themselves warm during the cold day thanks to the people heaters kindly supplied by Travis Perkins.

Gavin Wickham also joined in the fun and swapped his briefcase for a jet washer.

"The BBC Children in Need Appeal is a charity close to us here at Briggs. We are very pleased with the amount of money we raised and we are proud to be associated with this worthy cause," commented Gavin.

In addition to the "Directors’ Job Swap" and "Celebrity Car Wash", the company hosted a "Quiz Day", "Big Cake Bake" and "Dress Up, Dress Down Day".
