A Quiz Night was held for staff on Friday 25 September, where all those who attended enjoyed an evening with good food, drinks and of course, the quiz itself.

The event was a great success, raising €340 by those who participated, along with another €120 from staff who were unable to attend.

Together this gave us a grand total of €460! Thank you to all those that were involved.

To celebrate the renewal of our sponsorship with West Ham United, our staff where able to get their hands on this year’s kit for a small donation to our charity partner Special Olympics Malta.

The sale brought in a total amount of €276. This has been added to our 2019/2020 fundraising pot and is a great start to help us reach our target of €16,000 by May 2020.

On the 26th May, Betway organized a Family Fun Day for all Betway staff and their families members, along with the Special Olympics team, Athletes and their families. It was a fantastic day, and great to see everyone together.

What’s more, together we raised over €300 for SOM, which Betway will be matching to bring the overall total raised to €610. We look forward to seeing you at the next event and will update all on this page :)

We are delighted to announce that our 2019 charity partner is Special Olympics Malta (SOM). This will be the third year running that we have partnered with SOM and we want this year to be the best yet.

Since SOM was founded in 1968, Special Olympics has grown from a competition involving 1,000 athletes to a worldwide movement of four million athletes, having over 170 accredited programs. Each of these programs reflects the culture, customs and diversity of their local communities while sharing a reputation that defines Special Olympics.

Even as they grow in numbers, their story still centres on brave individuals who achieve great things together.

SOM’s National Director, Anna Calleja, wanted to share a few words with you:

“Betway and Special Olympics Malta have been working together with an aim to send a message of unity in sports. Sports helps all sections of society to develop friendship, understanding and acceptance. Betway and Special Olympics Malta hold hands to show that everyone is equal in sports.”

Throughout the year we will be organising a few initiatives to fundraise for this fantastic cause, so key an eye out for communications about these. However, if you’d like to fundraise for SOM outside of these events, please feel free to utilise this dedicated fundraising page!

Saturday 20th October, 11 staff from our Malta office took part in The Grid Sprint – a 6km gruelling obstacle course.

Not only did they all complete the course, raising €100s for their chosen charity partner – Special Olympics Malta – but they did it in style, with one of the colleagues (John Mackie) crossing the finish line with a beer in hand.

Congratulations to all 11 staff members who took part:

  • Emma Zammit
  • Mark Abbosh
  • Owen Micallef
  • Laurens Grossard
  • Andrew Parsonson
  • Jaz Cable
  • John Mackie
  • Karolina Iskrzynska
  • Jo Flagstad
  • Chris Broughton
  • Ryan Mizzi

We spoke to a couple of the staff after the run to see how they felt.

Mark Abbosh – ‘It was a very well organized event with some much tougher obstacles this year. It was certainly challenging! Entering as a Betway team and raising money for a good cause made it a very enjoyable and rewarding experience.’

Laurens Grossard – ‘One can only bond by suffering together. In that respect, The Grid offered an ideal platform for an outstanding team building activity. It was very challenging, but nothing compared to the daily fight of people with disabilities. Therefore, I'm happy that we're sponsoring a good cause like Special Olympics Malta.’

Karolina Iskrzynska – ‘This year The Grid Sprint was very tough but at the same time I had so much fun. The Grid Sprint was a challenge and face my fears also to see if my mind and body could handle different types of obstacles that you had to experience over there. Team Betway who participated in did a very good and hard work to support and contribute to Special Olympics.’

Dear Betway Team,

In September 2011 Special Olympics Malta initiated a new program called ‘Healthy Athletes’. This initiative was created to reach out to all people in the community with intellectual disabilities. It looks to offer free health services and information to athletes in need all around the island.

This year’s event was spread over the course of two weeks. One week having the screenings done in Gozo and the following in Malta.

I was lucky enough to have been invited by Theresa, Healthy communities coordinator with Special Olympics, to go and have a look at what screenings they were offering. I was greatly surprised at the number of people that filled the room and what Special Olympics were offering, screenings in dental, podiatry and fitness.

Overall I wanted to say a big well done to Special Olympics for providing these services and becoming the largest global public health organization dedicated to serving people with intellectual disabilities in Malta.

If you would like to get involved or simply get weekly updates, all you would need to do is have a look at the link below:

At Betway, we continue to support Special Olympics through our 2018 events programme. We look forward to sharing other great experiences resulting from our continued contribution to Special Olympics Malta.
