London, UK (WiredPRNews.com) A group of spirited pensioners have raised hundreds of pounds for a local charity through raffles and their thoroughly deserved bingo winnings. The bingo fans are all well into their eighties and nineties and were helped to raise money online and in bingo halls by their carers in Haverhill. Organiser Yvonne Warren, 81, was delighted to hand the Haverhill First Responders with their cheque; “I am just active and I think it keeps me going. I organise the raffles and fish and chip suppers. Everyone here supports us; a lot of people donate their bingo winnings. They also give some really good prizes and are very generous.”
The First Respnders provide help in times of emergency throughout the closely knit community and this donation from Haverhill’s online bingo club will enable them to upgrade their equipment. The feat only goes to show the positive effect online bingo can have on a community aside from social and entertainment factors. You could play today at City Bingo.
Bingo has long been a common way to raise money for the community and can be found in towns, villages and cities throughout the United Kingdom. With bingo’s online presence becoming more and more significant, there has never been a better time to start your own syndicate or facebook group meaning that achievements like this will become more and more regular.
