Billericay Town: Raising awareness of gambling-harms
Updated: Oct 15, 2021
The All Bets Are Off podcast is delighted to announce that we are part of a collaboration with Billericay Town Football Club, which will seek to further our efforts in raising awareness of gambling-related harm.
We approached the National League South club a short time ago, and they were immediately receptive to the idea of this initiative. It was evident from our first interaction with Billericay Town co-owner Nick Hutt that they are a socially responsible football club and wished to lend a hand in our campaign.
From today through towards the back-end of next week, The Ricay will be posting a series of messages via their social channels that aims to inform the wider public – especially those that follow the club and the local community – on the seriousness of gambling-harm, what gambling-addiction can lead to, and to signpost to support services and listening content such as ourselves.
This campaign will include some of our trusted friends, most notably, Gambling with Lives, GamFam, Gamban, RecoverMe, Clean Up Gambling, and The Big Step.
Gambling with Lives will be the match sponsor for this Saturday’s game between Billericay Town and Hampton and Richmond Borough at the New Lodge. A few days later, the All Bets Are Off podcast will adopt the same role for Billericay Town versus Chelmsford City.
We want to take this opportunity to thank Nick and his team for all of their efforts.
