The newest bookmaker to donate to the British Greyhound Racing Fund (BGRF) has become MansionBet.
By being a donor to the fund, MansionBet will assist the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB), through the Greyhound Commitment, in providing vital welfare and dignity initiatives.
MansionBet ‘s head of sportsbook Ross Harkins said: “Over the past year we have invested a lot of resources into drastically improving our greyhound offering.
“Becoming a contributor to the British Greyhound Racing Fund was a natural step forward for us as a sportsbook and I’m delighted that we are contributing to the welfare and integrity initiatives to ensure the best possible care for greyhounds.”
This is accompanied by a series of ‘positive and productive discussions’ between the operator and GBGB about how they can work together more closely to facilitate the sport ‘s growth.
Recently, GBGB unveiled its Greyhound Retirement Scheme aimed at ensuring that every racing greyhound experiences a long and happy retirement by eliminating the financial obstacles to their rehoming.
Joe Scanlon, Fund Chairman, noted: “We are extremely pleased to welcome MansionBet to our list of major online contributors. In these difficult times it’s more vital than ever that all bookmakers who benefit from the sport accept their responsibility, thereby ensuring we are able to provide the highest level of welfare provision for the racing greyhound throughout their life.”
Mark Moisley, GBGB Commercial Director, concluded: “MansionBet is a well-known name in sport and we are delighted that they will now be contributing to greyhound racing.
“They are keen to develop a partnership with GBGB and provide sponsorship, in addition to the levy fund, and we look forward to working closely alongside them.”
