The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

CITY busi­nesses have signed up to en­ter a thrilling World Cup sweep­stake and raise cash for char­ity at the same time.

Deaf­blind UK is be­hind the fun con­test, which will see the com­pany with the win­ning foot­balling nation, be­ing pre­sented with a life-size replica of the World Cup.

Jeff Skipp, Deaf­blind UK’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, will pre­side over the team draw at noon to­mor­row.

There will be 32 balls drawn at the draw, each rep­re­sent­ing a coun­try tak­ing part in this year’s tour­na­ment, these will then be al­lo­cated to the Peter­bor­ough com­pa­nies that take part.

Each com­pany that has en­tered into the sweep­stake will be no­ti­fied of the coun­try that they have been drawn later that af­ter­noon.

A pro­file and anal­y­sis of their newly acquired team, to­gether with a World Cup wall plan­ner to chart their team’s suc­cess, will also be sent to them.

The re­sults will also be posted on Deaf­blind UK’s web­site as and when they hap­pen.

On July 12, the win­ners of the 2010 FIFA World Cup sweep­stake in aid of Deaf­blind UK will be in­vited to the char­ity’s head of­fice in Hampton where they will be pre­sented with the tro­phy.
