Bristol England, August 6th 2007. The UK’s leading sports betting information site, OLBG.CO.UK today announces the two charities chosen to receive donations from OLBG.co.uk’s member’s charity scheme. The chosen Charities are Heros and The Great Football Giveaway. OLBG.co.uk is committed to increasing the awareness of smaller charities such as these, who have little mainstream or government contributions.

Tipsters compete on OLBG.co.uk with fantasy money with the chance of winning real money prizes. Rather than take these prizes in cash, tipsters have the opportunity to donate them to the charity fund which will then be used to help sports related charities. For every £1 donated by tipsters, OLBG.co.uk will also donate £1 to the fund therefore doubling the donation.
HEROS (Homing Ex-Racehorses Organisation Scheme) is dedicated to ensuring former racehorses have a future when their racing days are over. HEROS re-trains these former athletes, ensuring they have a long, happy and useful life when they move on to pastures new.
The Great Football Giveaway donations pay for balls, pumps and valves for underprivileged children all across the world. Footballs not only provide some much needed fun for the kids, but they can also be used by schools to help increase attendance. Orphan centres can use them to draw kids off the street and into care, and community youth projects can use them to run education programmes about HIV/AIDS. Over time, with the support of football fans and players, they want to extend their reach into more countries across Africa, South America and Asia.

‘When we launched the charity scheme, many of our members suggested supporting a retired racehorse scheme. It was great to see that people who bet and tip on horse’s day in day out care so much about what happens to the horses when their racing careers are over. HEROS do a fantastic job and were an easy choice. We have a large number of users who love football. The Great Football Giveaway is an opportunity to improve the lives of children through a sport many of us feel passionate about. ’ Richard Moffat, Operations Manager OLBG.co.uk
