Big Charity Funds Raised By Mecca Bingo
It has to be said that Mecca Bingo has been working tirelessly in its approach to providing much needed funds and awareness for the Marie Curie Cancer Care. Bingo halls and employees up and down the country have been taking part in a wide number of events in order to raise funds and get people talking about the importance of supporting the group. In local communities, it is easy to see why so many people have banded together in this fashion to support good causes but the Mecca Bingo group also deserves a lot of praise for the way the online bingo site has managed to raise a lot of funds for the same charity.
Online bingo can provide community spirit
A lot of people moan about the fact that online bingo sites lack the same level of community spirit and endeavour as physical bingo halls but the announcement that Mecca Bingo have raised £500,000 in their online halls alone may put a lot of these complaints and concerns to bed. There is definitely a thriving online community with respect to online bingo and it seems as though Mecca Bingo are at the forefront of a lot of positive elements. There have been a number of promotions aimed at boosting the amount of money that has gone to the charity with the Have A Fantastic Day promotion bringing in £5,000 in five weeks.
The £500,000 that has been raised by online activities alone has been responsible for giving 25,000 hours of Marie Curie home nursing support, so the charity work is having a genuine positive impact on the lives of so many people. There are times when charity groups seem unable to have a positive impact on their community but this is not the case here as results show.
Over the past three years, the overall Mecca Bingo company, in association with the Rank Group, have raised over £800,000 for the Marie Curie Cancer Care. All eyes are now slowly turning towards breaking that million pound barrier, which will definitely be a great occasion for everyone concerned.
Online bingo sites still have a long way to go when it comes to providing a bingo experience that everyone can enjoy and feel at home as much as they do when playing in a bingo hall but progressive steps are being taken. This is great news and hopefully the Mecca Bingo group will be toasting further success in their charity endeavours.
