Family Fun Day
On Saturday 17th July, The All Bets Are Off podcast will be hosting a Family Funday at New Lodge, the home of Billericay Town Football Club. The day revolves around a charity football match between All Bets Are Off and The Peoples FC, a charity YouTube football club from South East London. Due to government restrictions, we have a maximum capacity of 900 spectators.
The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of gambling-related harm, as well as raise money for three worthy charitable causes. On the day we will host a couple of 'sharing hubs' with talks from GamFam and VitaMinds.
Gates will be open from 1 pm with the match kicking-off at 3 pm kick-off.
There will be food and refreshments available to purchase at the club bar.
