Return to the Community

MSA Ltd and it’s beneficiaries have started to return back in to the local community to resume door collections of the Goalden Gate Superdraw. The Collection Agents at Wolves FC for instance have resumed collections to over 1,500 Wolves customers.

Many measures have been taken to ensure the safety of both our members and our staff, with each member contacted prior to make sure that they were comfortable with the dedicated staff as well as the obvious changes such as keeping a 2-metre distance and the use of hand sanitiser, face coverings and protective gloves. With many supporters being elderly they were very keen to see the Collections Agents who provide a friendly face and the usual football conversation.

We have also resumed door collections in other areas such as Tamworth, Kidderminster, Walsall amongst others.

Thank You from The Royal Foundation

Wolves FC received a thank you last month from representatives of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge acknowledging the donation the club gave towards the ‘Head’s Up’ campaign. Through the Wolves’ Goalden Gate Superdraw the club managed to raise an incredible £675 at the home match against Man Utd – you may remember that on the weekend of this match, the campaign saw ‘Heads Up’ partner with Public Health England’s Every Mind Matters on the ‘Take a Minute’ activation where every game in the third round of the FA Cup was delayed by a minute.

Lucy Jackson, Corporate Development Manager at Royal Foundation, stated “Your kind donation will contribute towards the efforts of the ‘Heads Up’ charity partners and will provide much needed support to those people who need it most. Thank you very much again for choosing to support the ‘Heads Up’ campaign and for continuing to help us change the conversation .”

It is important that throughout the current ongoing situation that and coming months, it is vital that mental health remains part of the conversation, for both fans and players alike.

Goalden Gate Superdraw raises over £342,000 last season for Premier League and EFL Clubs.

Some clubs that sit higher up the English Football pyramid might think of Society Lotteries as an old fashioned way of bringing in an added revenue to the club but not the clubs that work with Goalden Gate Superdraw. Although, it has been a difficult season for most clubs due to the Covid-19 pandemic, MSA Ltd have still managed to raise over £342k for high profile clubs such as Wolves (supporting their Academy and Youth Development), Birmingham City FC (supporting their Community Trust) and Walsall FC (supporting the Youth Develoment).

At the start of the year, The Lotteries Council reported a record year of fundraising by Society Lotteries as the Gambling Commission published their annual statistics showing that the sector raised £333.22 million in the year to March 2019, up £32.95 million on the previous year.

This very much proves that Society Lotteries are still a great source of income for your Good Cause, whatever that might be!

Over £88k Raised for Non-League Clubs This Season

It has been a difficult season for most Non-League clubs this year with the sudden halt to the campaigns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. It is for this reason that Society Lotteries have become an important income stream for clubs in the lower ends of the pyramid to help them keep going.

Clubs such as AFC Telford United, Yeovil Town and Ramsgate FC have all benefited this year from MSA’s Goalden Gate Superdraw which has managed to raise an incredible £88,000 for Non-League clubs alone this year.

Fantastic Year for Age Concern Birmingham

The last few months for everyone, including the charity sector, have been really difficult financially and the uncertainty the country remains in has piled a lot of pressure on charities to raise money through new or different avenues.

Luckily for Age Concern Birmingham they have got a proven successful income stream in the Goalden Gate Superdraw and, over the last 12 months, this has brought over £17,000 towards the good causes of the charity. This figure has risen every year since Age Concern Birmingham began their relationship with MSA Ltd and we look to continue this trend over the next 12 months!
