Led by CEO Mark Harris, the other advisers who have been sober since the 1 January for charity include Marcus Hodges, Cristian Hintzpeter, Wendy Docherty, Nancy Maher-Brill, Holly Budd and Simon Dexter.
The two charities include Macmillan cancer support and the Princess Alexandra children’s hospital in Harlow.
The seven participants have signed up to a significant penalty scheme of £1,000 to each charity, or £5,000 for Mark Harris, if anyone tumbles off the wagon before 1 April.
Mark Harris, CEO at SPF Private Clients said: “If you’re ever going to do it, it’s now or never isn’t it?”
adding that he had total faith in the team’s honesty over lapses.
“Non-alcoholic gin and tonic and 0 pe rcent lager have been keeping the teams going so far although it’s been mint tea for me. But if you can’t trust a mortgage broker, who can you trust?”
To show support and boost the fundraising drive please donate to either of the charities via JustGiving.com here for Macmillan Cancer Support or here for the Princess Alexandra children’s hospital.
