The BGC has scooped a top award after raising £2.9m for NHS Charities Together from the virtual Grand National.
The unique event was named ‘Standout charitable effort of the year’ at the prestigious EGR Operator Awards.
The BGC and its members organised betting on the virtual race after the real Aintree
showpiece fell victim to the ban on live ‘sporting events due to Covid-19.
This award is recognition of the huge amount of work that went in to organising this event, with the support of our members and punters. The real winner, however, were the charities which shared in the £2.9m raised.
