The £10.6 million received includes increased contribution levels from the leading operators who committed to raise the percentage of GGY they donate from 0.1% in increments to 1% by 2023. The leading operators’ pledged percentage contribution this year is 0.5% of GGY.

Some notable donations in the books this time come from popular sportsbookie Bet365 that donated a total of £4,214,000.00. Entain plc gifted a solid £2,000,000.00, while William Hill plc handed the charity £1,000,000.00 in funds.
