Mecca Bingo has just announced the details of their new preferred charity, Marie Curie Cancer Care charity. The team at Mecca Bingo and Rank Interactive are hoping that all the many bingo players will help them support the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity too. Of course regular readers will remember how well that Mecca Bingo did for the Whizz-Kidz charity in 2008 / 2009, so well in fact that the Mecca Bingo team raised in excess of half a million pounds for the charity that helps children and youngsters gain independence through mobility. After managing so well in their previous fund raising efforts the pressure is now on for Mecca Bingo to continue with their fund raising for worthwhile causes.
Slow start but fund raising will pick up a pace
Mecca Bingo have set a target of £20k this year to raise for Marie Curie Cancer Care charity, and although figures raised so far are unfortunately less than a few hundred pounds , it is certainly early days yet in terms of fund raising activities. Mecca Bingo players and staff will most likely throw themselves headlong into their charity fund raising efforts as they have done previously with the Whizz-Kidz cause. There can be few more deserving charities than Marie Curie Cancer Care to get the Mecca Bingo fund raising treatment, as the whole team seem to put everything into their fund raising efforts even the Chief Executive himself joined in the fund raising with Whizz-Kidz.
Dignity for cancer sufferers – priceless!
The Marie Curie Cancer Care charity is an excellent cause and one that will be close to many bingo players hearts. Many people now have their lives touched by cancer and so we anticipate that the cause will be well supported. For those that haven’t heard of Marie Curie Cancer Care, the charity provides help and free specialist trained nurses to terminal cancer suffers. This charity allows cancer sufferers the freedom to decide where they wish to end their days, whether in their own home or at one of the many Hospices that the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity support.
