TLA staff, clients and friends experienced the opportunity of a lifetime yesterday by playing in a football match at Anfield, home of Liverpool FC.
The opportunity, which came about thanks to a kind gesture by a friend of the business, was organised as a thank you to staff and clients with the additional aim of raising money for NABS – the media industry charity that helps people to overcome challenges associated with mental health and wellbeing.
39 players from the likes of TLA, Octaive, Convertr, Performics, PHD and Wavemaker entered the field to You’ll Never Walk Alone before taking part in a competitive, yet friendly 11-a-side match that ended in a 4-5 scoreline. The away team, TLA Athletic, took a 4-1 lead into the half-time break before sealing the victory mid-way through the second period despite an impressive late fightback from the home side, TLA FC.
As well as it being an amazing experience for all, our day at Anfield raised £700 in donations from the players – a great contribution towards our fundraising push. Through this and a series of other events, we’re aiming to raise in excess of £25,000 for NABS in 2019.
Next up as part of our charity events will be the London to Brighton Cycle, which will see 100 media industry professionals take part in a 63-mile. For more information on that event, please visit our charity page.
