Clacton Pier commits to ongoing support of NHS

The landmark attraction has revealed how it will continue to support our NHS, and is encouraging others to do the same.

Brothers Billy and Elliot Ball, who own the pier, have decided to donate all profits from one of the machines located in the amusement arcades.

They said it's as a thank you for the service the NHS continues to provide.

As well as making ongoing donations, they will be encouraging fellow members of the British Amusement Catering Trade Association to do the same, or something similar.

Director Elliot Ball said: "The recent weeks have made everyone aware, if they did not realise already, how lucky we are in this country to have such a wonderful health service.

"Staff have gone over and above, putting their own lives at risk, to battle Covid 19 and look after our loved ones.

"We are going to set up an on-going and everlasting donation by giving over the profits of one of our machines."

The machine is clearly branded so customers know they're supporting a brilliant cause each time they play. 

It's an initiative which Clacton Pier has previously done for the Rays of Sunshine Charity.

The pier will be reopening its Bowling Centre this coming Saturday in line with Government guidance.
