Online gambling is a hugely lucrative business, and it’s great to see those involved in the industry doing their part to help others. Software designer Blueprint Gaming has recently taken on the task of raising money for charity, and its efforts are impressive.
Bike Ride For Charity
Three members of the Blueprint Gaming team (Nicole Wallbank, Andy Hall and Gavin Wright) cycled 425 miles from their office in Newark to the company’s headquarters in Germany. The ride took them a gruelling four days, but they were pleased with the result – having raised more than £16 000 to benefit the Children’s Bereavement Centre in Nottinghamshire.
“The generous donations have been incredible and with just over 20% to go to reach the target makes it all worth it. Big thank you from the Blueprint team”, reads a statement on Blueprint’s charity page.
The charity helps children from the ages of 3 to 18 with the grieving process while dealing with a loss or terminal illness in the family. The organisation also helps to provide additional support to schools in the wake of traumatic events. For example, over 600 professionals were provided with training to support students after the terror attacks in London and Manchester as well as the Grenfell Tower fire.
“We have seen the work that the centre does in the local area and it is a cause close to our hearts,” says Wallbank. “The cycle ride was tough but it brought us all closer together as a team.”
Blueprint still has £4000 to go before it reaches its £20 000 goal. The company continues to work hard to raise funds for the Children’s Bereavement Centre. If you want to donate to this worthy cause, visit Blueprint Gaming’s Just Giving page .
