Poker players got to show their charitable side at Dusk Till Dawn last week, raising £24,000 for the Help for Heroes charity.
The special tournament was held in memory of Corporal Liam Riley who died after stepping on an explosive device while attempting to rescue a comrade in Helmand Province. Liam's mum, Cheryl Routledge told the Sheffield Star, “We needed somewhere big and the people at Dusk Till Dawn were brilliant. They let us have the venue rent free and paid for all the staff’s wages.“It took a lot of organising as I had to contact all the players and various companies to ask them if they would donate prizes. But within an hour of sending out emails I was getting replies. It’s been quite amazing how much support we have been given.”Plans are already afoot for a similar event next year with organisers hoping to raise even more cash for Help For Heroes.Cheryl added, “The people at Dusk Till Dawn say so many people are interested that if I don’t raise £45,000 they will make it up, it’s just fantastic.” Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
