Having lost a wager with one of Edge Hill University's academic departments, I was obligated to spend a day at work dressed as a character from the Wizard of Oz. 'If I only had a brain' I would never have got into this situation, but I was committed - and decided to raise money for a great charity as well.
In an exciting online poll, the voting gave Dorothy Gale from Kansas a massive victory, so inevitably the gingham frock was mine... and I spent Friday 25th September 2010 walking round the campus in Dorothy getup. There are pictures, a video and a blog explaining the Oz connection.
So it would be great if you'd bung the North West Cancer Research people some cash.
Big thanks to Aladdins Cave Ormskirk for costume hire, Mike Nolan for polls and video, and numerous friends and colleagues for support and donations.
