Bingo players across the UK gather in their best bling and favorite denim this weekend as they head to their local Mecca Bingo for a special Denim and Diamonds fundraising event in aid of Carers Trust . Taking place on Saturday October 1, every Mecca club across the country will raise money for the charity, with fabulous prizes on offer.
Customers are encouraged to put on their jeans for the evening and take part in games to help Mecca raise £60,000 in 60 days for the charity. In addition to the usual fabulous jackpots, each club will have a sparkling Thomas Sabo bracelet to be won.
On top of all the club fun, Mecca commissioned a unique, custom denim and diamond-themed jacket, complete with a bingo-inspired embroidery design and subtle rhinestone embellishments. Available to bingo fans throughout October, the jacket features ‘Bingo Queen’ on the back, while the intricate floral pattern is interwoven with mini bingo balls and references to classic calls such as Kelly’s Eye (1), Lucky Seven (7), Two Little Ducks (22), Snakes Alive (55), Bang on the Drum (71) and Queen Bee (73).
Carol Rhead, Mecca Bingo Sites Marketing Manager, said: “Prizes and customers will shine at Mecca clubs across the UK this Saturday as we raise money to support unpaid carers at our night out. Denim and Diamonds.
“Our long-standing partnership with Carers Trust is something we are very proud of. We can’t wait for everyone to don their denim and their best bling accessories and work their way up to help us reach our goal of £60,000 this fall.
Online players can also get a share of Mecca’s £60,000 in 60 days of action, playing selected charity bingo games – Two Little Ducks, Main Event, Penny Lane and Lucky for Some – from just 10 pence, with 100% of the profits going to Carers Trust.
Since Makkah’s partnership with Carers Trust began in 2014, colleagues and clients have raised more than £3million for the charity, through activities ranging from bake sales to marathons and parachute jumps charities.
