On 7th September, our wonderful supporters Gecko had a staff BBQ and social at their premises in Yeadon.  To add a fundraising element, they decided to hold interdepartmental Bush Tucker Trials!  Six courses were served to participants for each of the four teams, including “Locust Linguine”, “Buffalo Worm Salad”, and last but not least, “Bug-ble & Squeak” reserved for the Directors and Management team.  Gecko’s own Ant & Dec and Kiosk Keith even made an appearance.  Spectators made pledges with Gecko’s very own ‘dingo dollars’ to see their colleagues tuck in, which resulted in £1000.00 being raised!
