Mecca Bingo Support The Carers Trust

Posted by: BingoKath - Monday, Feb. 24th 2014 7:06 AM

Every year Mecca Bingo has a charity of the year that it supports throughout its bingo halls around the UK. Over the years many funds have been raised for various charities and for 2014, the named cause is the very worthwhile Carers Trust.

The Carers Trust is the UK’s largest charity for carers, supporting those who are supporting others without pay. Part time and full time unpaid carers are all around the UK and it’s said that 60% will become a carer to a friend or family member during our lifetime, so that really does reiterate how fantastic this link is between the charity and Mecca Bingo.

Throughout the year Mecca Bingo will be raising money throughout their 97 bingo clubs, and at their online site too, to raise essential funds for the Carers Trust to pay for equipment and breaks for the carers who need it most. On Valentine’s Night, Corrie actor Antony Cotton who plays Sean Tully in the soap declared the partnership open with a guest stint at Mecca Bingo Bolton and now the race is on for players to raise as much money as possible.

If you want to support this fantastic cause you’ll need to look out for special events at your local bingo hall, or head into the Mecca Bingo rooms from the 1st to 7th of every month and play the special Carers Trust games in the Lucky For Some Bingo room.

If you’d like to give this charity a little extra support then www.meccabingo.com has also launched a Just Giving page where you can give donations directly to the Trust too!
