First Choice Woking Gets Red-dy For Red Nose Day!
You Nose It Makes Sense
The First Choice Travel Shop in Woking is getting into the swing of Comic Relief?s Red Nose Day by organising a hair-raising event at Woking Football Club!
The shop in 21 Commercial Way, Woking is planning to hold their Red Nose Day event on FRIDAY 9 MARCH at Woking Football Club, where a brave member of the First Choice team, Scott Harding, is having a full body wax to raise cash for the charity.
COME ALONG FROM 7pm - 11pm AND JOIN IN THE FUN IN THE CLUBHOUSE
As well as the waxing, the First Choice team is running a raffle, an auction and pub quiz. Tickets to the quiz are ?2 and are available from the Woking branch.
As official Holiday Partner of Red Nose Day 2007, First Choice is committed to raising as much cash as possible for Comic Relief and the vulnerable people in the UK and Africa it supports.
Tyron Hamlin, manager of the Woking travel shop said: ?We are really looking forward to the event on March 9 and think Scott is a good sport in getting a full body wax for charity!
?We also thank Woking FC for their support in allowing us to hold these events at their club ? it?s sure to be an eye-watering experience!?

The Comic Relief Promise
In order to run itself in a professional and effective way Comic Relief incurs necessary significant costs. Raising funds, making grants and organisational overheads cost real money.
Despite these costs, Comic Relief is still able to promise that for every pound the charity gets directly from the public a pound goes to helping transform the lives of people living with poverty and social injustice. If Red Nose Day raises ?50 million, Comic Relief will spend at least ?50 million doing just that.
It can make this promise because its operating budget is covered in cash or in kind from all types of supporters like corporate sponsors and donors, suppliers, generous individuals and government (including Gift Aid) as well as from investment income and interest.
