Great Wall of China Challenge

11 June 2015

During April 2015, twenty-eight supporters of the Responsible Gambling Trust (RGT) trekked challenging sections of The Great Wall of China and raised some £42,000 towards RGT's annual fundraising effort. Teams and individuals from William Hill, SG Gaming, The Bingo Association, Gala Coral, Genting UK, Castle Leisure, Majestic Bingo and New Coronet Bingo Club. This was RGT's third international trek having previously been to Mount Kilimanjaro in 2013 and to the Sahara desert in 2014. In total, some eighty inspired supporters from fifteen companies have raised over £165,000 from the three international treks helping both to fund the work of RGT and to raise the profile of RGT across the industry.

In February 2016, RGT will be returning to Mount Kilimanjaro and asks individuals and companies to join this international trek in support of RGT. Reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is a truly inspiring and unforgettable challenge and your participation will make a real difference to the lives of those assisted by the work of RGT.
