One of the strategies in our action plan is to create mindfulness of others by participating in fundraising activities for a number of selected charities. Our favourite is Talk Like a Pirate Day raising funds for childhood cancer. This is a day of great fun and merriment for our staff, with everyone getting dressed up and talking like pirates and making very bad pirate jokes. It creates a sense of creativity, team spirit and also gratitude for our own situations. The costumes are often created to reflect people’s work roles, which adds to the humour of the day.
