Hacks vs Flaks announces teams and sponsors

An all-star cast of PRs and journalists are all set to go head to head this Sunday (9 April) in the 10th Hacks vs Flaks Easter Sports Day.  

The 10th Hacks vs Flaks Easter Sports Day will take place on Sunday 9 April.

A record haul of over £13,000 has been raised for national wheelchair sports charity WheelPower, thanks to lead sponsors Amazon and Nationwide and co-sponsors EY, Direct Line and FTI Consulting.

All eyes will be on the football and netball action at 12pm down at the Bank of England Sports Centre as the Flaks look to bounce back from last year’s dominant display from the Hacks.

The players will be joined at the reception afterwards at 2pm by WheelPower ambassadors and Paralympians Jess Stretton MBE and Issy Bailey.

“Do come down for an action packed afternoon of sport and networking and an opportunity to meet some truly inspirational Paralympic athletes,” said FTI Consulting’s Ed Berry.
