Top online casino provider, Microgaming, is once again supporting a charity event through its Play It Forward initiative.
While many governments around the world argue online gambling does not give back to the community, Internet casino developer, Microgaming, proves them all wrong time and time again.
This time, the provider of slots, table titles, live casino games and more, is helping the children’s hospice, Rebecca House.
The charity is marking 10 years of children’s palliative care at their wing in the Hospice Isle of Man.
Rebecca House delivers children’s palliative care to over 32 families and to celebrate the anniversary the charity will be holding an event on Saturday, July 1.
It will involve either a 1.5km or 3km ‘Bubble Rush’ where you can run, jog, skip, walk or dance through a shower of coloured bubbles for a good cause.
Rebecca House has praised the iGaming company, which is continuing to support its local community through its Play It Forward Initiative.
“We are so excited to be bringing this event to the Island, not only is it a first for the Isle of Man, it is an inclusive event with all ages being able to enjoy the fun of running or walking through all these coloured bubbles,” events manager for Hospice, Sharon Connor, said.
“We are very grateful to have Microgaming on board to support this event as it maximises the funds raised, ensuring as much money as possible can go to support our patients and their families.”
“85p of every pound raised goes directly to patients so their support makes a massive real impact on people when they need most it in our compassionate community.”
Microgaming created its PlayItForward initiative in 2014 to raise money for charities, health programs, education and even sporting projects. It is an extension of the Microgaming Health and Care Trust, which was founded in 2002.
Head of Microgaming Play It Forward, Claire Coleman, said the fundraiser “is a fantastic fun run event that everyone can get involved in, irrespective of age and sporting ability.”
“And with Play It Forward being a community-driven initiative, this is the perfect event for us to be supporting.
“Here at MGS House, we can’t wait to get involved,” she said.
The event will be held at Mooragh Park in Ramsey, which is next to the Rugby club and guaranteed to be a family fun day, offering music, food stalls and more.
For those who wish to attend discounted early bird tickets can be purchased up until May 1 when prices will increase to £20 for adults, £10 for children under 16 or £50 for a family ticket – two adults and two children. Kids under three, get in free.
