Fantasy football league supporting Centrepoint

With the new football season well under way, staff across London compete for cash by picking the best team.
Staff across ludlowthompson's ten branches have caught football fever and are channelling their enthusiasm through a fantasy football league to support Centrepoint, the charity for young homeless people.
Half of every staff member's entrance fee goes towards the charity, with rest being divided up as prize money. Some of our staff are getting help from the experts - their children! They've found that they have a better knowledge of football than they do.
Not only does the winner receive the prize money and bragging rights, they also have the honour of organising next year's competition.
Centrepoint is ludlowthompson’s charity of choice and does great work combating homelessness amongst young people.
Centrepoint provides a range of accommodation and additional support in health, education and life skills for homeless people between 16 and 25 years of age.
The fantasy football leagues is just a small part of the fundraising effort this year by ludlowthompson's staff.
Over the summer ludlowthompson has raised money for Centrepoint through bike rides and a 10km run. Shortly some of its staff will be participating in Centrepoint's annual Sleep Out.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman of ludlowthompson says: “Centrepoint is a brilliant charity with a very worthy cause, so it's great to have a range of charitable events for our staff to get involved in, from serious sporting events to a bit of friendly competition like our fantasy football league.
"Last year's winner and this year's current frontrunner are both Welsh so despite their good start to the European Championship qualifiers, the Welsh national team manager might start looking over his shoulder if results turn!"
