SNAPSHOT: Fantasy fundraising

Thames Valley Police, led by chief constable Peter Neyroud were among the hundreds of workplace teams which wore their favourite football team's shirt for a day to raise money for homeless people last Friday. Strip 4 Shelter, sponsored by Nationwide, is now the UK's largest football-focused fundraising event. As well as wearing their team's strip to work, participants donated 90 minutes of their salary to Shelter and school children were asked to give £1. Many employers also organised or supported five-a-side football matches, penalty shootouts, sponsored celebrity haircuts and other associated activities. A final tally has not yet been counted but the event is expected to raise more than £250,000 with an estimated £50,000 from schools alone.
