Benny Day Brilliance!

For those of you who may not know, my full time job is at Boots Head Office in Nottingham and although most days I am behind a desk today was wonderfully different. Boots host an event once a year to raise money for the Boots Benevolent Fund known as 'Benny Day'.

This year was fantastic! We had a massive marque full of wonderful stalls from jewellery, bags and shoes, to cakes, cheese & samosa's. All from local business and all from very talented beans! Everyone in the office is given the afternoon off to partake in activities such as Rounders, Boots got Talent & more as well as having the luxury of a free lunch and lots of pretty things to look at and purchase.... and all in the name of charity!

I was lucky enough to not only have the afternoon to take part but to be able to take my Hello Sunshine stall into work to show off! It was fab, catching up with friends, meeting new people, talking about anything and everything with customers & stall holders and not to mention making money and getting the Hello Sunshine out there!

As well as lil' old me being there I met some wonderful people including the fabulous lady behind Pink & Lilly (one of my most favouritest shops in the world!) and I was lucky enough to be stood next to The Teabirds and their beautifully yummy cakes!

Thank you to everyone who came along today... even though it was hotter than the sun inside our marque! A great day, a great cause! Winner!
