What has a red nose and bounces like a kangaroo?

March 27th 2013

The answer is intrepid Paisley Court Manager Allison Kennie, who took to her space hopper for Comic Relief on Friday 15th March.

Allison, who carried out all her duties and inspections astride the big orange hopper, raised £140 for the charity and managed to toughen up her thighs and posterior in the process!

She said: “Standing up was tricky after a day on the ball and I ached a lot on Saturday, but it was worth it for such a great cause. Everyone joined in the fun and they were cheering me along as I hopped down the corridors.”

As well as Allison’s bouncing efforts the home raised £44 from a coffee and cake afternoon and thank you to everyone who donated cakes and came along for a bit of fun on the Friday afternoon.
