Bingo Loves Variety
Following a fantastic five years of fundraising, The Bingo Association, its members and their customers have raised an amazing £1.6 million for Variety, The Children's Charity: exceeding the target of £1 million set in 2015 at the beginning of the relationship.
The funds raised have made an impact on so many lives and The Bingo Association is delighted that funds raised by customers are distributed in the very communities from which they were raised.
The Bingo Association has committed to continue to raise funds for Variety until we reach our new target of £2 million! We know that collectively as an industry we can make that figure within 18 months, based on the fantastic efforts of members and customers over the last five years.
2019 was an amazing year for fundraising generating over £305,000, exceeding our target of £250,000, and the Association would like to thank everyone for their efforts in bringing the total raised to date to over £1.6 million.
November and December 2019 saw the presentation of our 28th and 29th Sunshine Coach minibus in five years. In early 2020 we donated a further 4 coaches, but it was not possible to make physical presentations at that time due to COVID.
