DIARY: This charity work can be a funny old game

Those City slickers from Dewe Rogerson will be swapping their pinstripes for soccer strips next month in a surreal game of life-size table football.

Those City slickers from Dewe Rogerson will be swapping their pinstripes

for soccer strips next month in a surreal game of life-size table

football.



Organised by Save the Children, the bizarre event will raise money for

its Children in Cities campaign. Dewe Rogerson has gallantly lent a hand

with the PR and fielded a team for the tournament. The agency will

battle it out with other teams from City firms and PR companies on an

inflatable pitch at the Broadgate Arena, near Liverpool Street, London

on 3 June. Strapped to movable poles operated by other team members,

players will be moved from left to right and attempt to score goals by

kicking a foam ball. The good news is that each game only lasts seven

minutes and players cannot be spun 360 degrees in the air.



But quite how public relations practitioners will react to being

manipulated by someone else is anybody’s guess.



Dewe Rogerson is keen for other agencies to enter their own teams. Would

be table-Cantonas or Ginolas should call Save the Children’s Janet

Abbott on 0171 716 2176.
