Mike‘s bet on Hammers wins £200 for homeless charity

Mike had won the money for the charity by placing a £25 bet last month  predicting that West Ham United would beat Leicester City 2-1  at odds of 8-1.

Life long Hammers fan and season ticket holder Mike said  

I was delighted to receive the invitation from Ladbrokes. But as I was unable to visit them on Grand National day their Area Branch Manager Greg Boal kindly said I could go the following week and make an alternative bet for charity. I decided to split  the £50 into two bets on West Ham to win at Leicester 3-0 and 2-1.  Fortunately one of my bets was successful. I am doubly pleased as the Hammers won and Shelter will get £200 from Ladbrokes.
