MansionBet is Latest Bookmaker to Contribute to British Greyhound Racing Fund
The British Greyhound Racing Fund (BGRF) is pleased to announce that MansionBet is the latest bookmaker to become a contributor to the Fund.
Their decision has been welcomed by the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) and also by the BGRF Chairman Joe Scanlon, following positive and productive discussions with MansionBet about how they can work more closely with the sport.
In paying into the Fund, which is sustained through voluntary contributions from bookmakers, MansionBet will now be supporting GBGB to deliver essential welfare and integrity initiatives through the Greyhound Commitment.
Most recently, this has included the launch of GBGB’s Greyhound Retirement Scheme, which aims to ensure every racing greyhound enjoys a long and happy retirement by removing the financial barriers to their rehoming.
Ross Harkins, Head of Sportsbook at MansionBet, said:
“Over the past year we have invested a lot of resource 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.”
Joe Scanlon, Chairman of the Fund, said:
“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, added:
“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.”
