Pokerstars Extends Charity Partnership With Right To Play

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated May 18, 2017

Two year extension will provide GBP600,000 in funding

PokerStars' corporate giving programme, Helping Hands, has extended its partnership with global sports and education charity Right to Play for a further two years, taking its total support to more than GBP 1.5 million.
Through Right to Play's specially-designed games, vulnerable children learn critical life skills, such as leadership, self-confidence, how to avoid disease and how to resolve conflicts without violence.
PokerStars' two-year extension will provide Right To Play GBP 600,000 in additional funding enabling it to continue delivering high impact programmes and scale up its work.
"We are immensely proud of our partnership with PokerStars and extremely grateful for their continued support, not just in terms of funding but also for the exposure to their 108 million customers and the fabulous charity tournaments that they hold for Right To Play," Neil Child-Dyer, Partnerships Manager at Right To Play, said. "Without the backing of our corporate partners like PokerStars, Right To Play would not be able to help as many children around the world."

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
