What a weekend it's been!
Comic Relief was definitely the focus at 'The Red Nose Glass Cone' this weekend, with a fantastic combined effort from studio tenants and staff all working together to raise as much money as we could in aid of Comic Relief.
As everyone who visited will know, we created a special Red Nose Day bath bomb and soap. We hope you enjoy using them - we've certainly used ours for a nice relaxing bathe this evening! Thank you to everyone who supported us by making a purchase, which has added to a final combined amount of over £1000 collected over the weekend at the Cone (we'll post the final amount, once the count has been completed).
But special thanks has to go to Charlotte Hughes-Martin, our resident glass artist, who you will have seen on the BBC's Midlands Today (and heard on the BBC's Radio WM). Charlotte blew over 200 glass red noses (she's in the piccie), supported by Caroline Scully, and had people travelling to see her from across the Midlands. Good one Charlotte! Sadly she had some very sore hands by the end of weekend, so we rustled up a soothing butter balm which should hopefully help them a little.
