White Label Casinos, the go-to provider of white-label casino solutions to the iGaming industry has committed to raising funds for St Gerard’s School Trust in Bangor, Wales, as part of a new initiative to significantly improve facilities for pupils and the wider community.

The company has set a fundraising target of €140,000 over the next two years to support a revamp of the school’s sports and education facilities, enabling increased enrolment and greater community engagement.

Attended by White Label Casinos CEO Phil Pearson, the school was founded in 1917 by the Irish Sisters of Mercy. St Gerard’s has maintained an excellent reputation for top-tier education in the region, with additional funding set to help further boost its strong position as a leading independent school.

St Gerard’s School has been recognised for offering 1:1 education and mentorship to children from disadvantaged backgrounds and unstable families. In addition to this, the school has accepted several displaced Ukrainian refugees, supporting their educational journey and well-being since moving to Wales.

This marks the latest in a string of CSR efforts fronted by White Label Casinos, with the company raising vital funds and awareness for the MSPCA in 2023, recently sponsoring the IFR Poker Cup at Portomaso Casino where €3,300 was raised for the animal charity.

Details of fundraising activities for 2024 will be announced in due course.

Campbell Harrison, headmaster of St Gerard’s School, said: “It always gives us great pleasure to meet past pupils and see how they’re getting on. I remembered Phil well and it was fantastic to hear his memories as a child growing up in the school and what had and hadn’t changed! We were delighted that he got in touch, and I am overwhelmed at his generous gesture to help support the school and leave a lasting legacy.”

Stephen Griffiths, business manager at St Gerard’s School, said: “We are proud to be working with such a well-accomplished alumni to raise funds for St Gerard’s so that its pupils can access the best facilities a school can offer. It is so important to help build its legacy for the next 100 years so future generations can reap the rewards of such a strong academic school that looks after its pupils in a safe, fun and friendly environment.”

Phil Pearson, CEO at White Label Casino, said: “When you leave school you go through a multitude of feelings, mainly relief, but the longer time flies by the more you realise that you picked up many life skills and ways of learning from a place where you felt at home. St Gerard’s is an amazing place. The work they do is honourable and it’s a privilege to do something amazing for a school that not only deserves the support but is a necessity for the local area and future generations of children.”
