To liven up proceedings, children’s charity Starlight – which organises the run to raise money to treat children spending Christmas in hospital – has been searching for teams to dress up as characters from the carol.
With drummers, colly birds and partridges in pear trees a-plenty, there’s no word yet on which City team will be swapping their suits for skirts to become nine ladies dancing.
But The Capitalist is tipping her santa hat to Neil Darke, chief executive of Collins Stewart Wealth Management, who has persuaded five of his colleagues to join him in tights and tutus to form seven swans a swimming.
“Its not often I wear a tutu,” claimed Darke. “But this is such a worthy cause, I couldn’t resist and I thought I’d make a better swan than a dancing lady”.
Seeing as most wealth managers live in mortal fear of black swans, The Capitalist can only assume Darke and his team will be sticking to traditional white.
