    Story

    Next weekend, 50 people harmed by gambling including many families who’ve lost loved ones to suicide are taking to the streets.

    We will walk 42 miles in 2 days, calling at three clubs with gambling sponsors - Newcastle United FC, Middlesbrough FC and Sunderland AFC. The message is clear: gambling advertising has no place in football.

    It would mean a lot if you could spare the price of a coffee, or even lunch, to go towards refreshments for all walkers across the weekend. https://www.buymeacoffee.com/thebigstep

    Your support, as always, is what keeps our walkers walking.

      A massive thankyou to everybody who took part, supported and donated in our first Big Step event in June 2019. We raised over £4000 for Gambling with Lives which will help in achieving our ultimate aim of preventing any more gambling related suicides. Our next event is in London in February, where will walk 100 miles in 75 hours visiting six clubs that have a gambling shirt sponsor. All information can be found here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/thebigstep. Please consider supporting, donating or attending!

      Gambling advertising should be banned at sports events in the same way as cigarettes and alcohol - it's far more damaging

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
