Gaming firm Betway announced this week that its employees have successfully raised more than £70,000 for its charity partner, the English Federation of Disability sport, which works to allow disabled people stay active through playing sports.
Betway has worked to raise money for the charity over the past couple years, and last year they raised £25,000 for the group. The casino group revealed that the money will go to the EFDS Inclusive Fitness Initiative, which will work to make athletic facilities more accessible to those with disabilities.
Speaking about the donations Betway CEO Anthony Werkman said, "We are really pleased to have raised over £70,000 for the English Federation of Disability Sport, and are proud of all Betway Group employees who have contributed to this worthy cause. We are always looking to contribute to different charities and in 2018, our employees will vote on which charities Betway should partner with.
Betway also announced that they donated £16,000 to a children's charity thanks in part to their sponsorship of the UK Snooker Championship, which just ended. The company pledged £10 for every point scored over 100 as well as £10 for every century break. That donation went to the Jessie May Children's Hospice at Home program.
