So after the Leeds 10k (which I ran for Gamcare) I just wanted to say a big thank you to all those who sponsored me. Particularly to Andy Edwards, Owner of Madaboutslots.co.uk, who threw in £50 for the cause (just over a ¼ of the total I raised).
Anyone who works in gambling knows just how important the work of Gamcare is and that it is almost entirely funded by the gambling industry itself. The not only provide help and support for those who can’t manage their problems, but provide a fundamental lifeline for those that really need it in a non-judgemental fashion.
If it wasn’t for Gamcare there would be very limited support for individuals with a dependency in the UK and as such I am very proud to have supported them.
Despite the scorching weather, having flu and a sprained ankle, courtesy of a certain member of the BlueClaw staff (our internal 5 aside gets a little aggressive) it was an enjoyable event.
Thanks Again to everyone who sponsored.
