THREE Hereford charities will be chosen for Hereford’s new Monopoly game.

The charities will each get to star on each of the game’s three community chest spaces.

Ella Gibbs, custom games executive at Winning Moves UK, said: "It's our way of thanking the public for getting behind the brand-new Hereford Monopoly game so very enthusiastically.”

Earlier this month it was announced that Hereford is getting its very own official version of the popular board game.


The public were asked to send in general nominations and suggestions for landmarks and organisations to feature in the game.

Polling for these landmarks closed last night, but has reopened today specifically for nominations for the three charities to star in the game.

To qualify and be in the running to be selected as one of the three, the charities have to be Hereford focused and be official charities.

Ms Gibbs said: "We would like to formally thank each and every person who has sent in nominations so far and as our way of a big thank you, three Hereford charities will now get to star in the game.

“We feel that charities getting to feature on all of the game’s three Community Chest spaces is a great fit, bearing in mind the ‘community’ aspect of these unique Monopoly features.”
