    Well I just finished and as I left our PR Ambassador was on an exercise bike the in entrance. Dunno if we're doing anything good though, other than encouraging people to do the local Mile.

    Just finished again today and as well as having the PR Ambassador and somebody else on the exercise bike, there were a few people in the main entrance line dancing? Not very sporty but meh :p: When I left they had stopped, I guess they had got all jigged out.

    Will see if there's anything going on tomorrow, but I'll probably be gone before the store even opens.

    What did your stores all do for Sports Relief? We were gonna do this combined bike ride equalling the distance from London to Brighton, I was looking forward to it but wanted to wait til the list grew before putting my name down. But the list never grew And then names started being crossed out, and I don't think todays weather helped.

    Today I served a lady who works at head office (it took me ages to work out she meant Sainsburys head office and I didn't understand why she was talking about this Justin guy as if I ought to know him) and she was telling me that they've been doing sponsored dances, swimming, running, cycling etc etc and raised £9000 on Thursday alone. Rather embarrasing when she asked what I had done, I tried to buy a few of the raffle tickets but they'd been taken away by the time I finished my shift, and I got to wear my Arsenal shirt to work today :o: I thought it was best I didn't say that though.

    We've had one of the checkout team leaders dressed up as a clown for the last few days. Don't know what that has to do with sport though! A few other people are running the mile and a few of us were sent along to run the mile with Justin in Edinburgh.
