All monies raised by the auction will be going to GamCare’s education programme and in particular to promoting their recently launched website www.bigdeal.org.uk. This new site is targeted at young people aged 12-18 to educate young people about the risks of problem gambling and to support those experiencing difficulty through their own gambling or that of family members (usually parents).
“BigDeal is a fantastic resource for young people and teachers. Our challenge now is to make sure that as many young people get to hear about it and take a look at the site. Marketing and promoting BigDeal is therefore a key element going forward and GamCare are keen to develop the marketing plans for the BigDeal website.“ Commented Ruth Halahmy, Marketing and Fundraising Officer from GamCare
