Gilberto Silva’s fruity balls

Lovells did its bit for charity on 7 April. The firm hosted a glamorous reception to promote Street League, a charity that uses football to promote social inclusion, crime reduction, conflict resolution and education.

The event was attended by Arsenal FC and Brazil footballer Gilberto Silva and former Wimbledon FC manager David Bassett. It included a draw to select teams for the Street League World Cup Final, which took place in Regent’s Park on 9 April. Bizarrely, the draw featured numbered tangerines that Silva and Bassett had to pluck from the barrel. Not a lot of balls, then.
