Clements Hall, Nunthorpe Road, York YO23 1BW.
1:00pm-4:00pm
16 - Members, Friends & Family

Come along to this session (walking distance from the station) to hear about the risks of gambling and the
power of advertising, and to discuss steps we can take to help action against the harm caused and for restrictions on advertising. [These are topics about which WI members have demonstrated significant concern over the past couple of years]: with some 1.4 million people addicted, the activity being a factor in between 117 and 496 suicides per year, and 11,000 gambling messages sent in the opening weekend of the 2023/24 Premier League football season.
The session will be led by Liz Ritchie MBE co-founder of the charity Gambling with Lives, who lost her son to the addiction, and William Prochaska, who has worked with Gambling with Lives and is now an independent advisor and the leader of the Coalition against Gambling Ads. Lunch will be provided – soup, baked potatoes, tea, coffee, biscuits; Friends and family will be welcome too.
