First of the teams to announce their re-entry into Flannels For Heroes 2012 is WHEB Group. Ben Goldsmith’s team were the winners of last year’s event following a nail-biting final against the Herrick Warriors, skippered by Maj. Paddy Jackson.
WHEB Group is a specialist green investment business comprised of WHEB Partners and WHEB Asset Management, which invests in globally listed sustainable stocks, and WHEB Infrastructure Partners, which focuses on investment in European renewable energy projects. The WHEB Group has total assets under management of over £160 million. It also has an affiliated company, RUSTON wheb, the specialist cleantech executive search company.
A Herrick Warriors team is also anticipated in 2012, as is a Hugh Grant XI. It is hoped a title sponsor will enter the fourth team.
