My Give as you Live Experience:
Every year now for more than 10 years, I have got together with a group of between 10 and 20 friends for our Fantasy League football auction. Our league now spans a premiership and championship division (memories of my sole relegation in 2005/6 are just beginning to fade) and competition is still keen to lift the cup at the season’s end.
Indeed the arrival of fatherhood and parental responsibility for many league managers has not capped the enthusiasm for the game. Although fantasy league remains the focal point it does provide an opportunity for us all to get together a number of times each year – and who knows whether we would see each other as often without it?
Anyway, we buy the online functionality from Fantasy League at a cost of £34 per person per season, and this is one of the great Give as you Live purchases, as I would have bought this anyway, and it’s great that Breast Cancer Campaign gets 10% of this sum.
Now, if only all Premier League clubs bought their summer signings through Give as you Live then the amount going to charity would be phenomenal.
