On 25 October, at an incredibly wet Warrington venue, a team from the Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT) Manchester office - including a number of actuaries - took part in an 11-a-side football match against HS Admin.
The JLT team were dressed in pink in support of the national 'Wear It Pink' day.
The weather did not lend itself to top quality football but the two teams battled it out in raging
winds and lashing rain against a backdrop of forked lightning slashing across dark skies. After a few early flurries, JLT managed to get two goals through Paul Pritchard and Dwaine Crawford before it really started hammering it down.
After a short break and a few formation shuffles the match got under way again with HS Admin looking a bit more composed on the ball as
the match wore on. Despite this, JLT managed to get two more goals from Marc Law and Dwaine Crawford to take a 4-0 lead, as the rain fell ever harder.
Eventually, a bit of HS Admin pressure told and they were able to score from a cross to make it 4-1 just before the end.
A terrific £666 was raised for the Breast Cancer Campaign, which included a matching contribution of £333 from JLT.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who played and all those who donated to a great cause. www.breastcancercampaign.org/
