Genting Raises £121k for CHIPS Charity

UK land betting firm Genting Casino revealed this week that their staff has raised £121,000 for the CHIPS Charity over the last four years.

CHIPS Charity sees the UK betting industry looking to generate funds for disabled children in order to purchase wheelchairs, who'd otherwise have no access to them. Genting has been working with the charity since its formation in 2001, and over the last four years has raised the six-figure sum, a valiant effort on the part of the casino's workers. The funds were raised by employees who ran marathons and fundraised their efforts. The funds have been used to purchase 18 brand new wheelchairs, which have been deployed in Essex, Birmingham, Brighton, Luton, Glasgow, Torquay, Bristol, Leicester, and more.

Speaking about the donations CHIPS Charity's Linda Lindsay said, "The money that has been raised by members of Genting UK is quite incredible, every time we work with members of the casino it's evident to see just how much the charity means to every single team member. From everyone at CHIPS, I want to say thank you for helping to transform the lives of so many people in the UK."

Genting's Jon Duffy added: "It gives me great pleasure knowing that Genting UK have raised such an amazing amount of money for a truly worthy cause. I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all the team members at Genting UK who have put so much time and effort into raising money for a charity that has really become close to our hearts."

"Over the last three years we have built an exceptionally strong relationship with CHIPS Charity and I know that everyone is looking forward to raising more money for the charity in the future, to help improve the lives of many more children."

Well I'd like to hear these charity funds had been given by the company itself instead of their employees and staff which in fact allowing the brand then making a good PR campaign for themselves without in fact being the payer...or maybe I've got that wrongly...anyway most of the others companies didn't even makink such an effort.
