UK bookmaker Coral has raised £10,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, over the past month, new and existing Coral customers have had the chance to take part in Coral’s ‘GOALvember’ activity, allowing them to win free bets. Each week, the challenge asked punters to select a footballer from Coral’s list of players and each time they scored that week, they won a free bet. For every entry into GOALvember, Coral donated £1 to Prostate Cancer UK. The promotion ran for four weeks and generated a total of 10,000 entrants.
Paul Browne from Coral presents Alison Walker from Prostate Cancer UK with a cheque for £10,000, raised through the bookmaker’s GOALvember challenge.
Simon Clare, Coral PR and Broadcast Director commented: “We’re delighted to be presenting this cheque to Prostate Cancer UK. Punters took part in our GOALvember challenge in their thousands so it’s great to see their ‘free’ bets going to such a wonderful cause.”
Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK “We’re incredibly grateful to oral and its staff for raising such a phenomenal amount for Prostate Cancer UK. With over 40,000 men diagnosed with the disease every year in the UK and one man dying every hour, it is our aim to help more men survive the disease and enjoy a better quality of life. We thank everyone involved in making this happen.”
