ListenOn Friday 16 September Helsinki house voted for their preferred motto, anthem and charity. Here are the results:

With nearly 43% of the vote, the Tamla Motown classic; "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" is chosen by the house members.

The motto chosen by nearly half the house members is:
"Live the life you love and love the life you live"

Two charities were streets ahead of the rest and separated by only two votes.

NSPCC Website After discussions with the house captains it was agreed that we will give the majority of our money raised to NSPCC (the technical winner) and...
Wildwood Website ... we will also support Wildwood by sponsoring a wolf this year.
