Also give out soccer items to Catamount Football Academy
One of the top sports betting companies in Nigeria, Betwinner have taken the act of corporate social responsibility (CSR) to another level after donating cash and food items to three different entities.
Betwinner officials on Saturday, 10th of July, 2021 visited the Bab-Es-Salam Orphanage Home on Joel Ogunnaike Street, G.R.A Ikeja, Lagos State to make food items and cash donations to the children.
At the Bab-Es-Salam Orphanage, food items like bags of rice, packs of spaghetti, cartons of noodles, vegetable oil packs, toiletries, cartons of hand sanitizers, snacks, drinks, stationeries and cash donation were made.
Betwinner also gave out soccer balls, training cones, training bibs, shin guards, hoses (socks), goal-keeper kits and captain bands to Catamount Football Academy located in the Magodo – Isheri area of Lagos.
While responding to the kind gesture of Betwinner, Catamount Football Academy co-ordinator and coach, Olusegun Ayoola Idris said that it was one of a kind that he and his boys had received from any organization.
“We are so happy to have Betwinner donate soccer items to Catamount Football Academy because the game in Nigeria is killing. We have so many talented players in the country but they are not going far because there are no sponsors putting money into football.
“But football is a lucrative business, I must tell you. When I first saw Betwinner officials, I thought they only came to flatter us but I was so surprised to see their full squad give us soccer balls, training bibs and some other football kits.
“I was so excited and if other companies can be doing this, whao!, football can grow much better in Nigeria. Betwinner have done a great thing, I really appreciate the management and every of their staff.
“I also believe that they will even do much better in the future, I believe this is just the beginning. I am also happy to see Betwinner coming around to challenge other betting companies in Nigeria.
“And by taking up the act of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in this form, I believe that Betwinner can easily win the sports betting market in Nigeria as footballers also play bets a whole lot.”
Betwinner marketing manager, Olufemi Adeyemi while speaking admonished the children at the Bab-Es-Salam Orphanage Home to stay focused on their education as they can become whoever they wish to in life.
“We love all you children and encourage you to be the best version of yourselves. Study hard, play hard as well, be focused, be determined, you can achieve anything in life, you can be doctors, lawyers and even pilots.”
Finally on Saturday, 17th of July, Betwinner gave Tabitha Home Orphanage in Ibadan, Oyo State the following: food items like bags of rice, packs of spaghetti, cartons of noodles, vegetable oil packs, toiletries, cartons of hand sanitizers, stationeries and also made a cash donation.
