Brilliant Solutions has launched an NHS fundraiser open to anybody connected to the mortgage industry who owns a smart phone.
The mortgage club and specialist mortgage distributor has organised an online poker tournament that is free of any and all gambling accounts, and is free to play, with no money bet or gambled.
Players participate for fun – “and industry pride” – as well as the chance to win a winner’s trophy. All funds are collected through a voluntary donation via the company’s Just Giving page which has been setup to donate to NHS Charities Together.
Matthew Arena (pictured), managing director of Brilliant Solutions, said: “Making this purely donations based allows this tournament to be purely about fun and fund raising. We hope that players will be generous and together, as an industry, we can raise a significant sum for the NHS. No doubt it will help some people who are bored of watching TV all evening too.
“We wanted to ensure that players of any ability can participate and this setup has achieved that. Congratulations to Michael Craig, Darren Pointer and the rest of the team for finding something so accessible and making this work.”
Michael Craig, sales director of Brilliant Solutions, added: “Removing the association with gambling was crucial for us and it took a while to find an appropriate setup to do this but I am pleased to say we have managed it. The company has planned an industry wide fund raiser for some time and we did not want to let Covid-19 stop us this year when it is clear that these efforts are more important than ever.
“We are gaining momentum with this quickly so it is proving popular already. With the event starting in May and registrations open until the end of April we already have just under 100 people signed up for the tournament after only a few days.”
People can donate by visiting the Just Giving – Brilliant NHS page.
