Gala Bingo Raise Further £5,000 for Sue Ryder Care
Gala Bingo last year helped to raise a whopping £1 million pound for the Sue Ryder Care cancer charity. By the end of 2010 Gala Bingo is also hoping to raise further funds for the charity – in fact a further £500,000! Gala Bingo propose to do this by throwing special charity bingo games as well as putting on special fundraisers. Regular readers of Sunlight Bingo may recall that so far this year, Gala Bingo has had a charity cricket match which was played against Mecca Bingo. Gala Bingo didn’t stop there though as they also arranged a charity football match between different Gala Bingo hall employees, plus plenty of other fundraising events.
Gala Bingo Raise More Money for Charity….
Gala Bingo has recently completed another fundraising activity that saw eleven Gala Bingo employees cycling from London to Cambridge. Now this was no easy bike ride as all eleven participants had to cycle a very long 60 miles, no doubt this left the group exhausted and with sore bums. To make the bike ride a little more enjoyable they decided to take a countryside route towards Lea Valley and then into the village of Bishop Stortford before they arrived at their final destination of Cambridge – lets hope they sampled some of the drinkies in the local pubs en route!
The charity bike ride saw Gala Bingo getting £5,000 closer to their goal of £500,000, with the efforts the whole Gala Bingo team are making so far we are sure that they will be able to reach this figure by the end of the year. Congratulations to the eleven employees of Gala Bingo that took part in the bike ride from all of the gang at Sunlight Bingo. They should be really pleased with themselves for raising so much money for such a good cause.
Thanks from Sue Ryder Care….
Chief Executive of Sue Ryder Care, Paul Woodward said “On behalf of Sue Ryder Care, I can’t thank everybody at Gala Coral enough for their truly fantastic support. The money Gala Coral employees continue to raise enables us not only to maintain provision of care via our health and social services nationwide but to develop and grow so that we can reach out to more people.”
