SHEFFIELD, England, October 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Following the success of Movember, Bet4Balls.com a new social enterprise designed to raise money in the battle against prostate cancer is working with seven world renowned bookmakers including Betfred, William Hill and Betfair to offer a unique opportunity to raise funding for leading men's charity Prostate Cancer UK.
Bet4Balls.com is the UK's first online betting website offering people the opportunity to combine betting on sports with donating to charity.
The first £5 bet (or more) a person places with a partner bookmaker, having signed up via Bet4Balls, will release a free donation of at least £5 to Prostate Cancer UK. People betting through Bet4Balls will not only release a free donation to Prostate Cancer UK, they will also be able to enjoy the very best "free bet" offers.
Bet4Balls.com was founded by four passionate football fans to work alongside Prostate Cancer UK to bring awareness to the disease which sees as many as 1 in 7 men in the UK suffering from at some point in their lives.
One of the founders of Bet4Balls.com Daniel Sanderson said "We admire what Movember achieved in successfully bringing millions of men together to fight for a single cause and help raise money for a fantastic charity. We want to replicate that same success to raise awareness of prostate cancer in the UK as well as providing valuable funds to help with new methods of detection and treatment."
Bet4Balls.com combines entrepreneurship and philanthropy creating an innovative social enterprise. The main aim in doing this is to act as a catalyst for increasing social responsibility within the online gambling industry.
Notes to Editors:
- Prostate Cancer UK themselves have recently launched a new section on their website, focusing on their partnership with 'The Football League' (http://prostatecanceruk.org/menunited). With the campaign's tagline, "Men United vs. Prostate Cancer", it aims to unite men over a common interest, football. Bet4balls is looking to also harness this idea of common support in bringing together men in the fight against prostate cancer.
