The main event of the fund raising year is The CHIPS Charity Gold Tournament, which is now held at the famous Woburn Club, Bedfordshire in September.
Our supporters from the Industry have been incredibly loyal and we are pleased to welcome them every year to thank them for their continued support. Historically we have presented 2 youngsters with shiny new wheelchairs at this event, proving to be a really tangible way for our players and supporters to see where their efforts have been directed.
In addition, we also travel around the country presenting specialised, powered wheelchairs to youngsters in their schools, homes and at some of our donor's venues.
The amusement side of the gambling industry have helped substantially, donating funds through their own golf days and many varied, and sometimes crazy fundraising events, including a sponsored walk and with their staff being sponsored to shave their heads and wax their legs!!! (and that's just the men!!!).
Truly amazing people, doing truly amazing things to support us.
The Gaming Industry in the UK is extremely generous, but more is always needed, as so many youngsters need the help of CHIPS.
