Give us yur booty....

DH & his work colleagues went into work dressed up today for International Talk like a Pirate Day. Apart from the obvious fun of dressing up & demanding cash from amused shoppers they had a more serious reason.

Another colleagues' relative has a baby who was seriously injured at birth & needs Stem Cell Surgery in China which will cost £250,000!

So they all took a days holiday, dressed up in their finest & hit the streets demanding booty, pieces of eight & treasure:

Local Pirates raid the City Centre

They raised £266 which will hopefully take her a bit closer to China.

Hey you!!!

I don't remember signing a model release!!!! - Shouldn't you blur my face or something :P

'Tis a shame, that's a really bad picture of me & Pirate Paul. The other one was better.

I wanted to blur or patchwork your face but Calico Sam didn't want to. The other one was better as he took it!

Congrats in raising so much - I do hope that the little one gets the treatment needed.
