Our Webgains Sports Bar was a huge hit at PI Live 2022 this year and our Shoot Hoops fundraising initiative was an even bigger success. Friends and partners of the Webgains affiliate marketing network took on the challenge of shooting as many hoops in as short time as possible, simultaneously raising money for charity.
Read on to hear from our top three players from the two days we spent at Old Billingsgate. They tell us what charities they’ve chosen to donate to and why.

3rd Place: Jos van der Veen – EasyToys
£462 to be donated to Dance4Life.
Dance4Life works toward decreasing the rise and health threats that young people face today:
