Thanet district Council press release

Romans will be taking to the streets to raise money for Red Nose Day later this week (Friday 13 March).

Thanet Council’s grounds maintenance team will be dressing as Romans for Red Nose Day and will be raiding Council offices, collecting money from staff for Comic Relief, before heading out around Thanet to collect more money.

The team have a successful record of raising money for charity. Every year, they raise money for Children in Need and during the last Comic Relief, in 2008, they raised a total of £850.

Deputy Chief Executive John Bunnett said: “Our grounds maintenance team not only do a superb job of maintaining our parks and open spaces, but they also do an excellent job of raising money for good causes. They put so much effort into finding unusual ways to get people to put their hands in their pockets for good causes, so if you see any Romans out on the streets of

Thanet on Red Nose Day, please be sure to give generously. Hopefully, if everyone digs deep, then the team can raise a really good amount of money for Comic Relief.”
