Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
There are many good causes to support, but we (LGIM's Asset Allocation team) feel personally connected to Children with Cancer UK (CwCUK) as many of us are parents and we recognise the devastating effect that the news of a child diagnosed with cancer can have on both the child and their family.
12 (Macro Matter) Days of Christmas
Last year's Office Mannequin Challenge raised £6.4k for CwCUK which supported 8 different research projects including a revolutionary precision medicine project.
This year we decided to up the difficulty and lip sync to the 12 (Macro Matter) days of Christmas!
But we didn't stop there, we also re-wrote the lyrics in reference our year in the asset management industry, came up with actions for each day and recorded the song!
Filmed in and around the office, we bring Christmas cheer to our colleagues and passers by with our (hopefully!) angelic singing and antics.
We're proud of the final result which we hope you enjoy!
Christmas time isn't just about mistletoe and wine...it's also a time for giving.
So if the geeky lyrics and actions made you laugh, or simply shake your head at the sheer ridiculousness of it all, please donate generously to give children with cancer a chance to enjoy life and be children again.
Merry Christmas and thank you for donating, from LGIM's Macro Matters team!
