This week's charity was Sophia Housing Association

Charity bet winnings donated to Sophia Housing Association
Published: July 15, 2017

Following last week’s successful treble, ExtraTime.ie today handed over a three figure sum to the Sophia Housing Association in Cork.

 

The charity helps to deal with people at all different stages of their lives with bases in both Cork and Dublin.

 

The donation will go towards the introduction of night time activities for the people staying in their accommodation. They have three bases in Cork alone helping people going back to full time education right onto people trying to get their lives back on track after departing prison.

 

How the ExtraTime.ie Charity Bet works

Each week Stephen Walsh selects a treble bet and Paddy Power kindly enhance the odds. If the bet succeeds, all monies won are donated to the Charity of the Week. So far this year, ExtraTime.ie have raised over €2,800 for various charities following a charity abseil in Croke Park, along with the winnings of the other bets.

Stephen Walsh is an extratime.ie reporter since August 2014 as one can see by looking at his LinkedIn page in the bottom right hand corner. Stephen mainly covers games for Cork City and Cobh Ramblers but rarely provides any live updates owing to him working in a statistics capacity at the majority of these games.

The highlight of Stephen’s time writing with extratime.ie has been covering the Republic of Ireland vs Bosnia Herzegovina match in the Aviva Stadium back in November 2015. The lowlight though would have to be missing a penalty against sportsjoe.ie in a Media 6 a side tournament in May 2016.

Stephen is currently studying to be a primary school teacher in Marino Institute of Education.
