Charity Casino Night with Ladbrokes

Sunday, April 10, 2016


Last month I was happy to attend a Charity poker night at the Double Tree Leeds with Ladbrokes. Now I have to say I don't gamble much as I hate parting with money and to be fair I don't really understand how to do it. I love the 2p machines in arcades in seaside towns but I sweat at the thought of putting money in the 10p version.

With this being for charity I jumped at the chance to learn some poker as this is a game that has always intrigued me, and boy I'm glad I did. Also what I loved was it was for the charity of the winners choice so everyone was playing with a charity in mind and I think this raises awareness to lots of charity as people were discussing the charities to each other on the night and why they wanted to choose them. I think I nearly cried twice at peoples stories.

The event was Great Gatsby themed so everyone put on their glad rags and I have to say they all looked amazing. It was a sea of sequins and feathers and I bloody loved it!! We were treated to delicious canapés and wine all night too.

We were split over 3 tables, each with a dealer and the poker playing began. We had a practice round and then we played for real, and it was so much fun (especially when I won).  I was surprised at how well I did and after some time we were condensed onto 2 tables and then I even made it onto the winners table. I didn't get into the top 5 but I wasn't bothered I started cheering on the others as when someones charity is going walk away with £500 I don't think it matters who wins.


I also have to do a big shout out to the magician. He was freaking amazing. He did a trick on me and changed the card I was holding in my hand without touching me. I nearly threw the card, I didn't want to hold a magic card haha. I would love to see him again he's one of the best close up magicians I have ever seen and I have seen a few.


So the night was a success and Ladbrokes should be very proud. Also all the photos on this post were taken by Search Labs as I was having such a good time I forgot to take snaps.

Please take a minute to think of what charity you would have chose and is there a way you can help them?  Charities survived on donations like this and Im so glad to have been a part of it.
