Ladbrokes Gives Donation to Charity


Nice birthday present for BAAF

To prove that gambling firms do take care of the general interest, online and land gambling group Ladbrokes made a donation of GBP100,000 for the 30th anniversary of the British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF), which helps hundreds of vulnerable children and young people every year in finding loving and caring home.

This grant, which will provide support to BAAF over the next 12 months, is by no means the first charity fundraising initiative by the gambling group – one should not forget a London to Paris sponsored bike journey involving Ladbroke employees.

However, this particular initiative was derived in cooperation with Community Charitable Trust (LICCT), created in 2003 to provide funds to charities, particularly those that offer sports or leisure activities to the handicapped or disadvantaged.

“Ladbrokes is well known as a provider of entertainment and leisure activities that many people enjoy but its wider impact can often be overlooked,” said Richard Royal of the Ladbrokes public affairs department. “Many of our shops act as community hubs and we do an awful lot of charitable and community work, supporting hundreds of charities throughout the UK, employing 14,000 people and making a contribution to the economy. I am touched by the amazing work that BAAF does and am delighted to present them with this grant,” he concluded.

On the other side, Fundraising Director for BAAF Diane Gault stated: “We are absolutely thrilled with the grant from LICCT, helping to make a massive difference to a tremendous number of disadvantaged children throughout the UK. We are a charity that relies on the kindness of others to enable us to continue to provide important services such as getting families for children and advising potential adopters and foster parents.”
