As many will be aware it was Sport Relief on Friday, a yearly charity event that takes place to raise money and awareness for less fortunate areas around the world and here in the UK. In the last 2 years alone Sport Relief has managed to help over 189,000 children receive a proper education, 16,500 get the help they need to improve their mental health and over 734,000 children get life-saving vaccines. Sport Relief is currently funding 23 projects that support people living with dementia. It really is incredible what they do each year.
“50% is used to make a difference right here in the UK, and 50% goes towards transforming lives across the world’s poorest communities.”
It was a busy day for the B Sunglasses workforce on Friday. To kick things off in Sport Relief style, we thought what better way to celebrate than to participate in an Elite fitness class, jungle themed of course. For the class we had to complete a circuit that was full of challenging equipment that made us push ourselves to the limit.
We then popped along to the Clay Shed here at Hoults Yard to have a sneak peek of the dog show that was taking place, in other words we had our very own “CruftsYard” to attend. We were greeted with an array of cute dogs, all different colours and sizes, which we didn’t complain about, as we have plenty of dog lovers at B Sunglasses HQ. All dogs were judged by Metro Radio presenter Steve from “Steve and Karen Breakfast Show,” the owner of Hoults Yard, Charlie Hoult and a Volunteer from The Dogs Trust.
Remember this little pup from a few months back on our Instagram? Well, he has definitely grown up a little bit since then!
We even had one little dog called Tilly who was very keen to try on some of our B Sunglasses sunnies! We must say she suits them. Tilly went on to be the overall winner of the show itself!
