In the space of 3 days Casino 36 on Temple Street in the heart of the city centre have donated over £700 to the Alternative Giving Campaign, made up of sponsorship money for a charity event. Loose change donations and those all important “cash-out tickets”
Small Change for a Big Change campaign was launched in October 2016 providing an alternative way to donate to support the homeless and vulnerable in our city. With 19 donation points located across the city centre in locations such as Boots, The University Campus, McDonalds, Sainsbury Chapel Ash, The Info Stop at Victoria Street, Leaping Wolf Public House Waterloo Road and Wolverhampton Homes on Market Street we are providing alternative ways for people to give rather than directly to people on our streets. We are immensely proud of the £19,557.23 raised so far proving that the people of Wolverhampton are very generous with their small and sometimes not so small change.
In November 2017 Casino 36 jumped at the opportunity of having a donation box and has so far raised an impressive £2943.15 including unspent “cash out” tickets that they have generously converted into cash for the cause.
If you are interested in hosting a donation box please let your ambassador know or contact the BID Team on 01902 710903. The scheme is managed by the Wolverhampton BID (Business Improvement District)
100% of the funds raised go to support the P3 Navigator based on School Street, St Georges Hub, Chapel Ash and the Wolverhampton Street Pastors.

Cherry Shine BID Director said: “Helping the homeless and vulnerable individuals by providing the right support is fundamental to this initiative by providing an easy way to donate directly to these worthy charities, ‘working with the right agencies we will be able to support a positive change in our city centre’.”
James Thomas-Horton, Head of Marketing at Casino 36 said: “Our customers have taken this charity to their hearts and we are delighted with how much they have raised so far this year and since the start of us getting involved”
