13 Nov PlayTech Bike Build Charity Event – 20/10
PlayTech is the largest online gaming software supplier in the world. The company was founded in Estonia in 1999 and has enjoyed continued growth ever since. Among their offerings are state of the art gaming products, online cross platform gaming solutions and land-based casino management systems. Their mission is to optimize partner and licensee market positions, continually enhance the quality and scope of their product offerings and provide unparalleled online gaming experiences.
The company is keenly aware of the important role corporations play in the social fabric of the communities they serve and were interested in staging a charity bike build to foster a sense of teamwork and provide local kids with unforgettable gifts.
Victoria Stadium is located at the base of the Rock of Gibraltar. It’s a spectacular location with panoramic views out over the Mediterranean to the east, the Atlantic to the west and of course the imposing and majestic Rock to the South. It regularly plays host to UEFA sanctioned football matches, world class music festivals and scores of more modest but no less important events like the bike build Chez Vous organized for PlayTech.
A pair of local charities were chosen as the beneficiaries of the bicycles that would be built by the PlayTech staff. The Saffron Rose 4 Rett Charitable Trust seeks to raise money and awareness to combat the rare postnatal neurological disorder “Rett Syndrome”, while the Duquesa Charitable Society of St. George seeks to raise funds to help the less fortunate. Both charities arranged for disadvantaged children to receive the bikes built by the PlayTech team.
The event kicked off at 14:00 on Friday and wrapped up at 17:30. To say a splendid time was had by all would be an understatement. The PlayTech staff were able to strengthen their sense of unity and common purpose, exercise their team building muscles and enhance their community standing, all while giving something back to the community that has been so good to them. While the kids enjoyed an unforgettable afternoon of good food and fun topped off by the presentation of their completed bikes. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when 10 year old Saffron Rose herself made her way to the stage to collect her special needs bike.
