Another Mecca Bingo Employee To Run Great North Run
You can say what you want about Mecca Bingo but the company knows how to take their charity efforts seriously. Given the size of the company, this shouldn’t be a difficult thing to do but then again, a lot bigger firms thanMeccamanage to do a whole lot less with respect to charity. It has to be said that the community nature of bingo halls probably plays a part in the work and effort carried out by the company and a lot of credit must go to the staff as well.
Bingo firm working hard
This is not just a case where people throw loose change into a bucket, many of the fund-raising events and activities at Mecca Bingo have taken place due to the hard work and effort of staff members. The idea of running a marathon for sponsorship money comes to a lot of people but the thought of all the hard effort and training is definitely something that can put people off. This is why those that follow through with their plans and take the training seriously deserve every bit of respect and praise that is coming to them.
The manager of the Mecca Bingo Dewsbury hall is joining his team members and plenty of other Mecca Bingo employees from around the country in the Great North Run this September. The company is very supportive of the Marie Curie Cancer Care group and all of the funds raised byMeccaemployees in the race will go towards this group. David is hoping to raise a minimum of £500 alone so you can see that across the group, it can add up to a lot of money. No doubt nerves are kicking in about the race but David Walmsley seemed in high spirits when he spoke to the local press about his forthcoming run.
“It will be a first for me, as I’m not a very sporty person,” he said. “I am running about two times a week for four miles. The closer I get to the race, the more I will up my training. There have been a few jokes flying around from other members of staff, but I reckon a few of them should be up there to support me on the day. I’m sure that, one way or the other, I will be able to finish the race – even if I have to be dragged over the finish line!”
