I’m just back from the Warwick Hilton where I’ve been meeting with the team from Barclays in Coventry to discuss their 2012 Charity Ball. We’re only a few weeks away from raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation and Sands UK whilst entertaining the crowd at a black–tie ball. There’s so much to plan and organise and the culmination of everyone’s efforts should be a lot of drunken fun with a good few quid raised for the deserving charities.
My part is fairly easy – a bit of blab on the mic, spin some tunes… you get the idea? Well not entirely. There’s a fair bit of liaising to do and a whole load of equipment to shift but we live for this!
What does fill me with mirth though is the thought of the ‘fun committee’ at Barclays who are doing all the hard bits. The immature part of me sees them as something akin to the escape committee in the The Great Escape! I know that they probably meet in a meeting room with coffee and biscuits but part of me refuses to accept that and insists that their meetings are clandestine affairs in a stalag with look-outs and passwords.
I know. I need to get out more… 😉
