It may be the cricket season, but that doesn’t stop the footballers at WPP Group from organising a fundraising kickabout.
The funds are for charity, not for shareholders, but the final line-up won’t feature Martin Sorrell, who found it too hard to ditch the cricket whites.
About 20 teams from in and around WPP will be taking part in the event, set up by JWT account manager Neil Johnston, to raise money for the Raleigh International Kinabalu Challenge.
Enterprise IG has entered two teams, one under the leadership of manager and goalie Alan Jones, the other by Matt Clements from the Hampton Wick environs.
Rumour has it they’ve been watching footage of Landor’s and The Partners’ recent fixtures in an attempt to ‘master control of the last three feet’.
