An adult games centre has raised £100,000 in the last year to support disabled youngsters.

Cashino Gaming Centres, who are based in Sutton and Epsom, have been collecting money for the charity CHIPS.

The organisation provides specialised powered wheelchairs for young people with mobility problems.

The cash raised has gifted 17 youngsters around the country with state-of-the-art wheelchairs.

Cashino have fundraised through sponsored activities such as bungee jumps, five-a-side football, and raffles.

The charity CHIPS was founded by the casino and gaming industry.

Since 2005 Cashino have raised £250,000 for the organisation.

Always happy to read about fundraising but I still do not agree with a business such as Cashino that makes money out of people with gambling addictions. Gambling destroys lives.

How about raising money for the families suffering through gambling addiction? No? Thought not.
