Mobiles for Mobility at Mecca Bingo

Written by: Nikola Zugic on 15/10/2009 22:45

It is no secret that Mecca Bingo has played a huge participating role in raising funds for the Whizz Kidz charity in the UK. This is a mobility charity that helps children with physical disabilities get mobile so that they are able to live a more independent and normal life. We have seen Mecca Bingo staff members doing all kinds of things to raise funds for this worthy cause. For example they have jumped out of aeroplanes, lost weight, climbed mountains and now they are recycling old cell phones. They are not the first site to use this concept, but only the second I have seem so far.

The recycling of cell phones is not only a great way to raise funds, but it is also a “green” initiative. It is good for our planet for most things to be recycled, and if you think about it in the context of how many mobile phones any one person owns with upgrades and so on, the numbers become scary.

Mecca Bingo in their Mobility for Mobiles bid, asks that all Mecca Bingo members (including online players), bring their mobile phones into their nearest Mecca Bingo club. There are enough of these dotted around the UK, and there has to be one near to you! If not, ask a friend to do it for you if they have a branch near them.

Mecca has already made a huge difference to the lives of many children in their ongoing support for Whizz Kidz and in 2008, the managed to raise more than a quarter of a million pounds for young wheelchair users. They obviously want to break last years record making attempt and they can, but only with your help. So please help them, Christmas is just around the corner, and there are many children out there whose only Christmas wish is to be able to get around for themselves without having to ask for help every time !!
