Technical director of Gamesman, James Cove, is being treated for the kind of cancer that inspired the company to make the campaign.
UK.- At ICE Totally Gaming exhibition, the fundraising campaign held by Gamesman in support of the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and Mesothelioma UK, reached the amount of £50,000 –US$69,363–. The company is especially excited as the achievement doubles last year’s ICE edition.
The casino component manufacturer accomplished its 19th consecutive year in the international trade show. As well as introducing new gaming equipment and networking with partner and interested visitors, Gamesman took time to carry out its target to help the investigation and treatment for this disease.
“My sincere thanks go to everyone in the industry who has supported us so generously and to Kate Chambers and the team at ICE for, once again, putting on such a magnificent event for the global industry, for helping us to launch Target 25K at ICE 2015 and complete, what turned out to be Target 50K at ICE 2016, Gamesman’s ‘home show’,” expressed Mark Smith, chief executive officer at Gamesman.
Smith also highlighted the surprise Gamesman perceived with ICE 2016’s fundraising as they wouldn’t have imagined it even when they announced the first Target 25K last year. “However, and thanks to the fortitude, determination and tremendous generosity of the team at Gamesman, our colleagues and our customers in the international casino industry” the expectations were exceeded and now “Mesothelioma UK will be using its share to help pay the salary of one of its nursing team”, added the CEO.
