Betway has announced today that they will donate all operational and logistical costs of a race sponsorship to Racing Welfare during June 2020.
“What a wonderful way to mark the return to racing in the UK. We are extremely grateful to Betway for setting up this initiative and offering their support to our Covid-19 Emergency Appeal in these difficult times.“Racing Welfare’s Chief Executive, Dawn Goodfellow
The leading online bookmaker is sponsoring at least 13 of the first 18 fixtures during the return to racing in the UK however, with the new Covid-19 safety measures that are currently in place, they will be unable to send a representative to any of the racecourses where they are sponsoring.
Betway is generously donating what would be their logistical and operational costs of attending sponsored fixtures for the whole of June to Racing Welfare’s Covid-19 Emergency Appeal.
Betway’s PR Manager Chad Yeomans said: “Without having personnel on-site to support with our sponsorships, we are donating the operational funds that it would cost to do so, to Racing Welfare, who’s work within the sport is widely appreciated.”
