The Marie Curie Cancer Care has been a wonderful campaign supporter for cancer and bingo has been a big part of it.

A Leigh bingo successfully helped to raise an impressive £500,000 for cancer charity. There were nearly 100 who participated in the fundraiser across the UK and the Mecca branch was a large contributor. .

Mark Harrington, general manager of Mecca Leith Capitol, said: “I’ve been so impressed with the drive and enthusiasm the team members have shown when it comes to organising fundraising events at the club. The impressive result achieved goes to show just how hard everyone has worked. We mustn’t forget that this fantastic figure is also down to our generous customers – we wouldn’t have been able to do this without them.”

Fundraising events included royal tea parties, body waxing and head shaving along with football tournaments and tombolas to help raise cash.

Bingo both online and land based are an excellent source for cancer charity and a well-recognized contributor.
