The Bingo Association has announced that the total charitable donation raised during National Bingo Day 2021 was nearly double the event’s £15,000 target, as players across the country came together to show their support for Variety.
The 27 June celebration was marked by licensed operators from both the retail and online sectors, who hosted special games, offers and events in order to promote bingo to both existing players and the wider community.
“Variety, the children’s charity, are extremely grateful and proud to be partnering with the Bingo Association,” said Variety CEO Conrad Hollingsworth. “They have once again surpassed our fundraising expectations, and as part of the National Bingo 2021 Fundraising Day raised an incredible £27,154.77.”
“We know how important our work is to the children and young people and their families, we help across the UK. It is generosity like this that enables us to positively transform lives. Thank you to all the bingo clubs, customers and staff and all that took part in this incredible fundraising effort.”
Alongside land-based members of the Bingo Association, online platforms and operators including Playtech, Pragmatic Play, Gamesys and 888 all pledged their support for the day.
