On 27 August 2010, cast, crew and associates from the West End production of WICKED and the UK Tour of CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG got together for a kickabout in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The game kicked off at 12 noon and both teams played hard, with the score standing at 1-1 after 45 minutes, but the second half started apace and within minutes it was 3-2 to Wicked.
The goal-fest continued for Wicked with the final score standing at an impressive 7-2. Lead goal scorer was Gareth Chart with five, yes FIVE, and Lee scored the remaining two, surprising even himself (or so he said later)!
Sadly, I don't have the names of the CHITTY SQUAD, but the WICKED SQUAD comprised:
From cast: Lee Mead, Tommy Sherlock, Danny Mac, Dan Jones, Jack Wilcox, Niall Sheehy, Gareth Chart and David Stoller
Front of House: Rick Ashton, Joe Cartwright and Alex Arden
Backstage: Luciano Macis
Friends and fans of both shows dug deep and donated a fabulous £1,520.
Around 60-70 supporters were there on the day, to cheer on both sides, and my thanks go to Anne and Yvette for sharing their photos below. There are also a few videos on YouTube - the first to energe were from toylittlehorse and trudyb55 - thanks guys!
