Bromsgrove bingo-a-thon raises money for charity
8:00am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Local
BINGO lovers across Bromsgrove enjoyed taking part in a charity version to celebrate national Older People’s Day.
On October 1, Bromsgrove District Housing Trust’s (bdht) Bliss Care and Support service team spent 10 hours touring housing schemes for the elderly in Alvechurch, Catshill, Charford, Stoke Prior, Sidemoor, Norton and Wythall.
The bdht staff brought along its mobile bingo game for residents to take part in along with their friends and neighbours.
Cakes were also made available to buy from the touring staff.
Overall £124 was raised by the bingo-a-thon event, which is being donated to the Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke centre and Age UK.
Marie Jenkins, from bdht, said: “It was great fun to be able to celebrate this important day by playing bingo with more than 100 customers.
“Everybody had a really good time.”
