On the night before Easter weekend, all of Browne Jacobson went to the pub. All, that is, apart from Team Browne Jacobson. Instead the female quota of the team donned our red LLR t-shirts whilst Dave donned his yellow banana suit and we trudged off to Asda.
Asda had kindly permitted us to collect in their West Bridgford store for 3 hours. It was a great slot as it was full of people getting their last-minute groceries before the Easter weekend and kids sneaking tempting Easter eggs into their parents' trollies.
Fortunately a giant banana with a collection bucket standing between the pharmacy and the front door distracted many of these children. Some liked the banana: "Mummy, please may we give the banana some money?" Whilst others were highly suspicious of this banana's activities and clearly were concerned that he should have been with his banana friends in the fruit aisle.
But, love him or be scared by him, Dave the banana and the more sensibly attired members of Team Browne Jacobson managed to raise over £200 for LLR!
A big thank you to all who donated and if you weren't able to make it down to Asda but would like to donate, please go to our Just Giving page.
