As part of the Stand up to Cancer campaign, our award winning Executive Creative Directors at 4Creative (Chris Bovill & John Allison) have been stitched up by yours truly.

They asked us for fundraising ideas. We came up with this:

“Send John and Chris back on placement for one day.”

You could get two ECD's for the price of a placement team. For one day Chris and John are going back on placement to raise money for Cancer Research. It’s time this pair of has-beens do some actual work for a change

So we're asking people to buy raffle tickets for a chance to get their hands on the best tea making ECDs around.

Their duties could include the following.

  • Working on that dodgy brief.
  • Scratching backs (other parts negotiable for higher donations).
  • Working in cramped conditions (corridor, stairwell, gents).
  • Working on any pitch, they really love pitching.
  • Being all-round office gimps.

Raffle tickets cost £150. Get yours from the 4Creative Just Giving page. All proceeds go to Stand up to cancer SO BUY AS MANY AS YOUR FINANCE MANAGER WILL ALLOW!

All entries must be in by 12pm on 24 October 2014 and the "lucky winner" will be drawn out of a hat by 4Creative's very own placement team (us). Once you have donated, email 4creative with the amount of tickets you need and we will send you your digital raffle tickets.

Please don't be all shy and donate anonymously as we need to know who to send the tickets to.

Please log in or sign up before participating in the conversation.
