Eric Tsui, District Supervisor of Ladbrokes presented the cheque to Tessa Sanderson Foundation last week.
Mr Tsui, said: “At Ladbroke’s, it is great to give back and support local projects like Tessa Sanderson Foundation and Academy as it coaches and supports aspiring stars of the future through sports and education. It was inspiring for the team and myself to meet a starlet of the future like Jahmal Germain decathlete and one day see him competing in Rio 2016. We believe betting shops are a vital part of the local community and we should do our part in supporting it.”
