UK.- The British charity GambleAware received £2.3m in donations and pledges during the first half of the financial year, it has announced.

The largest contribution in the period was a pledge of more than £1m from William Hill, although the operator has yet to deliver the donation.

Gamesys donated £450,000, while Betway donated more than £100,000.

Other major donors in H1 were 888 Holdings (£50,000), Apricot Investments, the owner of Microgaming, (£40,000) Videoslots (£30,000) and Inspired Gaming Group (£25,000).

GambleAware has launched a tender for the creation of a new lived-experience network to represent people affected by gambling-related harm.

It has invited proposals for the design and creation of a “UK-wide network of people with lived experience of gambling harms”.

The initiative aims to fill the need for a “single, inclusive network which is representative of all people with lived experience of gambling harms.”

It says such a network is needed “at all levels of service delivery, research, policy and legislation formation.”

The programme will be run independently from GambleAware and will set its own priorities to contribute to national debate and policy making.

Prospective bidders are asked to outline  how they would engage a wide range of communities affected by problem gambling.

The deadline for submissions is November 17.

Meanwhile, GambleAware recently relaunched its Bet Regret campaign to coincide with the current football season.
