Collaboration – Never: Competition – Definitely

Having written last week about collaboration between breast cancer charities – I didn’t tell the whole story. The night before I published my blog, we competed against Breakthrough Breast Cancer in the Charity Softball League. Just in case you thought it was all love and co-operation – here is the posting by a colleague on our intranet about the match. All good fun – but never underestimate the competitiveness of those who work in the voluntary sector!

“Breast Cancer Campaign 10

Breakthrough Breast Cancer 9

An extremely close game, with lots of twists and turns: we were ahead after the 1st, 2nd and 3rd innings, before Breakthrough took the lead in the 4th. But we showed an abundance of courage and professionalism to keep the lead down to one run, before picking up 2 at the very end of the game to deservedly snatch the win, the first of the season.
A great team effort.”
