ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming, through its CSR initiative, PlayItForward, has donated £30,000 between four charities.
Gift of Giving provides Microgaming’s customers the opportunity to vote for one of several charities in their region. In lieu of Christmas gifts, £30,000 is split equally between four global regions: Isle of Man, UK and Europe, Africa, and Rest of the World.
The vote in December 2017 was Microgaming’s fifth annual Gift of Giving campaign, taking the total donated to £150,000.
The charities that received the highest number of votes in each region, for the second year running, were Women’s Refuge (Isle of Man), Teenage Cancer Trust (UK and Europe), Save the Rhino International (Africa) and Médecins Sans Frontières (Rest of the World).
Women’s Refuge Isle of Man provides safe temporary accommodation for vulnerable women and their children suffering from domestic abuse on the island. The Manx-registered charity has supported families for over 20 years and is predominantly run by unpaid committee members and volunteers.
