Our brilliant volunteers helped out at this year's Bubble Rush in aid of Hospice Isle of Man, donating their time and energy on a rare sunny summer's day on the island. The team worked together to make sure that everyone was having a good time, handing out balloons to the runners and cheering them on from the side lines. As you can see, one of our volunteers even got in on the madness!
Fourteen of our volunteers were out in force at the Microgaming Community Games. The event aims to help the island's youth discover various activities to keep active while having fun, with hundreds of kids (and our volunteers) getting involved in a number of different sports and activities on this sunny day in June.
The first mission of our volunteers was to support the Mayor and Mayoress of Douglas in raising funds and awareness for “Century of Song”.
Held at the Villa Marina in aid of the Mayoral Charity Appeal, to which Microgaming had already donated £3,000, Century of Song raised around £5,000 in support of three local charities: Manx DeCaf, Naseem’s Brain Tumour Charity and Anthony Nolan Friends Isle of Man. Our volunteers were more than happy to donate their free time to help with the promotion and administration of the event.
Volunteers consist of Microgaming Culture Ambassadors who have made it their mission to get involved in community events on the island.
PlayItForward has never been short of people putting themselves forward to help out at events, largely because of the supportive culture nurtured across the business. Volunteers are taking their involvement to the next level, not only by helping out at events supported by PlayItForward, but also in building their own volunteering roadmap and spreading the word across the company and beyond.
