Annual Charity Dodgeball Tournament raises over £69k for Demelza

On Thursday 2nd May, 40 teams from the financial services industry gathered for the 11th edition of the LGT Wealth Management Charity Dodgeball Tournament. LGT Wealth Management, one of the leading wealth managers in the UK, brought together over 500 people from the financial services industry to compete in their annual Dodgeball tournament at the Honourable Artillery Company in the City of London.


The event raised an incredible £34,640.85 which was then matched by LGT Wealth Management, as part of its charitable commitment, raising a total of £69,281.70 for Demelza.

Demelza is a charity providing specialist care and emotional support for babies, children and young people with serious or terminal conditions and their loved ones. LGT has supported Demelza as their charity partner for three years, running various fundraising initiatives, including the Dodgeball Tournament. Over the past three years, the Dodgeball Tournament has raised a total of £168,375.70 for Demelza.

The LGT Charity Dodgeball Tournament has grown significantly since it started in 2011, evolving into an industry-recognised event. With a fancy dress theme of choice, all the teams were creative, making for a fun and uplifting atmosphere. Buzzacott, a top UK accountancy firm took the prize for best dressed, as inflatable Flying Pigs.

Teams such as Blackrock and Morgan Stanley went head-to-head and dodged balls for the winning spot. Ultimately, it was Aviva Investors, team name ‘Aviva Las Vegas’, who claimed the top winning honors, closely followed by Artemis, donning Super Mario Bros attire, who secured second place.

Ben Snee, CEO of LGT Wealth Management, said: "We are proud to have raised a substantial amount for our charity partner, Demelza. It is an honour to partner with them and support their vital work. We extend our gratitude to everyone who participated and supported this year’s event; the camaraderie and enthusiasm of all involved make it a truly unique event for a very worthy cause.”
