14th April 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle “We will shortly be releasing our commissioning strategy which will detail how we plan to use this increased funding to help keep people safe from gambling harms,” she said. “It is estimated that two million adults in Great Britain are experiencing some level of gambling harm, and research published this year indicated that more than one in three people with a gambling disorder have not accessed any support or treatment. Email Address GambleAware received donations from almost 700 different businesses in total, each donating at least £250, which is GambleAware’s minimum donation. British gambling-related harm charity GambleAware has seen donations from gambling businesses was up 80.9% to £19.0m in the year ended 31 March, after major increases in donations from Flutter and Entain. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter GambleAware chief executive Zoë Osmond said the leading operators’ commitment to increase funding had been a major benefit to the charity. The £15.4m in donations from these operators vastly exceeds the total predicted by then-chief executive Mark Etches in January in a letter to the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Gambling-related Harms. “This growth in donations is the largest year-on-year growth we’ve seen, driven largely as a result of the commitment by the ‘Big Four’, Osmond said. “This will enable us to continue and expand our work to ensure evidence-informed services are developed according to need within a robust and accountable system. GambleAware donations up 80% in 2019-20 thanks to contributions from Flutter and Entain While Flutter overtook previous leader Entain, the Ladbrokes Coral operator still drastically increased its own donations, by 200% to £4.3m. In its first full year since acquiring the Stars Group to become the largest operator in Great Britain, Flutter Entertainment rocketed into first place in terms of money donated, with £9.3m, up more than 800% from 2019-20. The largest donation from a software supplier was £50,000 from Playtech. The charity received a further £8.8m from regulatory settlements, made up of a £3m settlement from WIlliam Hill after its Mr Green brand was found to have breached rules over preventing harm and money laundering, plus a £5.8m settlement paid by Betway for VIP failings. These two operators, alongside fellow market leaders Bet365 and William Hill, pledged to donate a total of £100m to improving treatment services for problem gamblers by the end of 2023. “With these donations, we will continue to fund and improve the National Gambling Treatment Service to provide support for those who need it, while working in partnership with many other organisations to increase awareness of support available.” CSR Topics: Social responsibility CSR Tags: William Hill Bet365 GambleAware Flutter Entertainment Entain Regions: UK & Ireland William Hill donated £1.0m, roughly level with 2019-20 Bet365 donated £763,000, down 11.8% year-on-year. In total, these four leading operators donated £15.4m. Osmond added that GambleAware will soon lay out plans of how it hoped to spend this money.

TAGS: Exeter Chiefs Welcome domestic break for key clashYou don’t have to go far back into the annals of European competition to find Cardiff Blues and London Irish mixing it with some big names at the business end of the tournament.The Exiles were edged out in a 2008 semi-final against Toulouse, while the Blues fell to a heartbreaking penalty shoot-out defeat to Leicester Tigers at the same stage a year later. The European stocks of both have failed to reach such heady heights since.The two clubs have endured uninspiring campaigns in 2014, and are at risk of spending the coming months with neck ache as they stare up the table as the high-flying teams pull further away.For a fortnight, however, these domestic woes can be set aside, as they collide for sole control of Pool 1. Irish’s 70-19 mauling of Rovigo in the first round showed their calibre in this tournament, and it remains the biggest scoreline in either European competition to this stage. But Cardiff Blues have shown unrelenting promise of their own, recording bonus point wins in their opening two matches to sit level with this weekend’s opponents.There can be criticism of the Challenge Cup throwing up dud matches and dead rubbers. This one is anything but – the next two weeks will prove pivotal to quarter-final qualification.Break from the blues: Both Cardiff Blues and London Irish have endured difficult domestic seasons so farChiefs proving Premiership form is no flukePerhaps the biggest Aviva Premiership story this season has been the seemingly irrepressible rise of Exeter Chiefs. An immaculate kicking display from Gareth Steenson did for Saracens last weekend, cementing the Chiefs’ position just three points shy of table-toppers Northampton Saints after nine games.And while cynics believe the momentum is due a stutter – a run of three away games in four Premiership matches will prove a tough run – their form in the Challenge Cup serves as a reminder that the eyebrow-raising performance so far this season is no flash in the pan.Their win in La Rochelle was their first success in six attempts on French soil, and gives them a great chance of qualification into the latter stages. Not only was Steenson, new contract in tow, again influential with the boot, but the composure shown in acquiring a late try bonus point will prove priceless if they are to continue pulling up trees domestically and in Europe.Kicking on: Flying high in the Premiership, Exeter show no sign of wavering in the Challenge CupEntertainment still on offerSuch is the streamlined new format of both European competitions that Champions Cup upsets on the level of Connacht‘s heroic toppling of Toulouse in 2013 are not so readily available. Instead, arguably the biggest shock in this season’s European rugby came in the second round of Challenge Cup action, when Newport Gwent Dragons ran out bonus point winners over Stade Francais in Paris.The scale of the Dragons’ achievement is impressive enough when you acknowledge the historically robust challenge that winning on French soil poses. But bearing in mind that Stade are yet to be beaten at home in the Top 14, and currently sit just two points off the peerless Toulon at the top of the ladder, the victory borders on the truly momentous. Trophy talk: What are the big talking points around this year’s European Challenge Cup? Perhaps what is more stunning still is that that same Newport side, albeit with a largely changed front five, were subsequently beaten by Newcastle Falcons at Rodney Parade the following weekend, despite crossing the whitewash three times in the opening half.It was a pair of results that perfectly advertised the quality this tournament has to offer. The Falcons top the pool heading into a double header with the Parisiennes and there is a genuine chance that all three sides will be in touch come Rounds 5 and 6. It is the type of entertainment that the Challenge Cup will thrive on.After shock: The Dragons caused an upset in France, but fell to Newcastle in their next matchRight team, right timeIn this month’s Rugby World, the 1872 Cup clash between Edinburgh and Glasgow was picked out as a “must not miss” clash for the Christmas period. But ahead of the traditional Scottish tussle, the Warriors are in the thick of a battle for domestic supremacy, while their nearby neighbours are facing a scrap of their own to avoid slipping into a Guinness Pro12 mini-league of five clubs at the bottom of the table.To add to the ever-widening gap between the Celtic rivals, Glasgow’s warm up begins this weekend with the first leg of a double header against European heavyweights Toulouse. Edinburgh, on the other hand, welcome English whipping boys London Welsh to the BT Murrayfield Stadium.The contrast could not be more stark, but Alan Solomons‘ side may find some respite in the back-to-back Challenge Cup matches ahead of them.The newly-promoted Exiles have conceded 50 or more points on five occasions this season, and their porous defence will certainly need to shore up if they are to stoke the attacking intent that Tom Heathcote, Andries Strauss and Matt Scott will be looking to bring.It may seem unfair to suggest that Welsh provide a blank canvas on which Edinburgh can unleash their creativity, but after an unbeaten start in the competition they will anticipate this as a chance to secure a quarter-final berth and garner some much needed confidence a few weeks ahead of the 1872 Cup grudge match.Clean through: Charlie Sharples has starred in Gloucester’s strong European startMomentum moment for Gloucester After a 21-9 success at London Irish last weekend, Gloucester director of rugby David Humphreys spoke of the “momentum” the result would offer his side going forward.Consistency has been the Cherry and Whites’ Achilles heel for some time, and it has been especially prevalent this campaign – they have only managed to secure consecutive wins on one occasion outside of the Challenge Cup. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Humphreys’ comments suggest that the upcoming back-to-back clashes with Zebre, starting at Kingsholm on Sunday, could provide a long overdue shot in the arm for their domestic intentions.They may also be eyeing a shot at the Challenge Cup trophy, with the quality of their squad seeming to outweigh that of the counterparts they may face down the line. Humphreys’ policy in sticking with a strong first choice side in Europe shows the inherent desire to gel a largely new look team, but also hints at a real intention in this tournament. The Challenge Cup returns to the rugby menu this weekend alongside its big sister competition. Here are a few things that you may have missed…

From afar the terrain seems inhospitable. A rather steep and rocky massif with crude and rough undergrowth appears, surrounded by buildings and lush grounds. To the west, the landscape dazzles…a vast plain dotted with homes and intersected by the railway line extends to the sea.Save this picture!© FG+SG – architectural photographyThe plan would call for four single-family detached houses with the project adding the ingredients associated with the site, leading to the sprouting of the idea. Thus, the rocky terrain with the ledge deserved something similar…more rocks should be added: habitable stones suspended on the wall that delimits the terrain.Save this picture!© FG+SG – architectural photographyWhat was initially a difficult challenge turned into the most enriching focal point of the project. The buildings sprout up from the ground and peek over the landscape extending far beyond the boundaries of each lot, spreading out over the terrain and surroundings in an astute manner.Save this picture!© FG+SG – architectural photographyThe dwellings were thus designed on the principle of adapting the buildings to the terrain and taking the greatest advantage possible of natural lighting or the landscape. In terms of the project, it was decided to open the buildings’ living areas mainly towards the south and southeast, so that each living space responds effectively to its own needs, taking full advantage of the constraints imposed by the terrain, and obtaining greater privacy for each lot.Save this picture!© FG+SG – architectural photographyThe project focused on designing three houses whose interior divisions are practically repeated, topped by three crystal cubes that turn towards the sea and which serve as a solarium.Save this picture!House 04Outside, the lot’s remaining land surrounds and embraces the rock, partially buried, which rolled over the ground and came to a stop at that precise location. In turn, home number four sprouts from the soil, emerging through levels that communicate with the terrain and in harmony with the other three houses and halting at street-level. This home opens onto the terrain that falls steeply towards its eastern limit, peacefully coexisting with the old granite aqueduct that winds its way between fields, and thus, without bias, opens outwards appropriating the landscape.Save this picture!© FG+SG – architectural photographyWhoever passes along the road faces four cut stones suspended in time and enjoying the scenery that is rhythmically interrupted by the rhythmic movement of another passing train.

Online charity auction platform, CharityStars has raised a €2 Million series A round to expand its operations in key global markets, led by venture capitalist firm 360 Capital Partners, A.S. Roma football player Stephan El Sharaawy, and LastMinute Group CEO Fabio Cannavale.Based in Milan and with recently opened offices in London, CharityStars ended the first quarter of 2016 with a positive growth of 120% in funds raised from charity auctions compared to the previous year. In 2015 CharityStars conducted €1,800,000 of online sales. Among the most prominent auctions from 2015 were a power-lunch with the founder of Candy Crush, Riccardo Zacconi, which sold for €25,000, an artwork by Andy Warhol which went for €27,000, a Valentino Rossi signed helmet for €15,000 and a Barcelona football shirt with a personalised dedication from Lionel Messi that sold for €11,000.CharityStars now plans to expand into the US and China.With 400 charity partners so far, CharityStars’ goal is to increase this to 2,000 charity partners by 2018 and double the average sale price, which is currently around €500.Francesco Nazzari Fusetti, co-founder of the project together with partners Manuela Ravalli and Domenico Gravagno said:“After the United Kingdom, we want to launch in the US and China. For the latter we already have several thousand users who follow our auctions and have become some of our top bidders. We have just launched the Chinese version of the site and we want to invest in targeted marketing campaigns. A paid online acquisition campaign would be a first for us, given that to date we have just benefited from free celebrity promotion through their social media channels.” 59 total views, 1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 16 August 2016 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 CharityStars announces plans to expand operations following €2 Million series A round Tagged with: auction Celebrity 60 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
