Media players pool resources

Pool-playing fiends at Cable Ad Sales emerged as the worthy winners in a charity pool competition last week, organised by media planner Matt Brown of the Media Shop.

Teams from Northcliffe Newspapers, Mediatel and Posterscope were the runners-up in a contest organised at the Ritzy Pool Shack in Victoria which raised 950 for Whizzkidz, the charity for children with walking difficulties.

Brown has so far raised 3,000 for Whizzkidz as part of a scheme which gives volunteer fundraisers the chance to go on a five-day trek to Nepal. The Diary hopes our young friend Brown remembered to pack a woolly hat when he set off on his trip last Friday – he is now completely bald after having his head shaved to raise another 475.
