Industry donators honoured by GREaT Foundation

18/04/2011

Electrocoin Sales Ltd, Gala Coral Group, Namco Group and Praesepe have been given Gold awards by The GREaT Foundation – the Gambling Industry’s charity responsible for raising funds to support research, education and treatment of problem gambling.

Astra Games Ltd, Reflex Gaming and many leading operators including Dransfield and SE Leisure have also been awarded Silver Awards at the Annual Awards 2010 which were presented to its top donors at Ascot Racecourse this week.

Presenting the awards, Geoffrey Godbold OBE – Director of The GREaT Foundation said: “We are extremely grateful to all those that made a donation for 2010/11 and special thanks go to our sponsors today for making The GREaT Foundation Annual Awards 2010 possible.  We appreciate that the last year has been very tough financially for the Industry as a whole and it is, therefore, even more gratifying to see operators making a special effort by increasing their support of The GREaT Foundation.  This is particularly applicable to our Donor of the Year 2010 – bet365 – who reflected its business growth by substantially increasing its donation to us. 

He added: “While it is invidious to pick out any one award winner, for all have gone beyond the call of duty, I feel that I must also acknowledge Punch Partnership – a GREaTest Donor 2010 award winner – who made a major donation and which, we hope, will encourage the rest of the pub sector to follow suit.”
