Cricket Match for Charity hosted by Gala Bingo

Published on August 16, 2010 under Celebrity Gossip

We found this great Bingo Event on a a bingo news site:

“Several bingo sites have been fundraising for different charities over the last few years, and at the moment Gala Bingo is raising money for Sue Ryder Care. On Friday 20th August it’s the turn of Gala Bingo Woking to hold an event, and they will be hosting a charity cricket match to bring in some money.

The match will take place at Plough Lane, Wallington, with 40 employees taking part, and all of the money raised will go to Sue Ryder Care to help them continue to provide four million hours of care to people living with long-term conditions such as stroke, brain injury, cancer, dementia, Huntington’s disease, Motor Neurone disease and Parkinson’s disease.

They are hoping to attract as many spectators as possible to watch the game and join in the fun. There will also be a grand draw which people can take part in, with the chance to win some fantastic prizes including a Surrey County Cricket Club bat which has been personally signed by Alec Stewart, a former England captain.

Gala Bingo, part of the Gala-Coral Group and operate both live UK bingo clubs and an Internet bingo site, chose Sue Ryder Care as their group charity in July 2008, after an employee vote gave them overwhelming support. The group has pledged to raise £1.5 million by the end of 2010 by carrying out many different fundraising activities.

The General Manager of Gala Bingo in Woking, Graham Freemantle said; “We’re really looking forward to the day as it’s a great way to get employees from across the Group together while raising money for such a good cause. While it will be great fun, no doubt there will be a lot of friendly rivalry to win the title.”

Gabriela Potworowska, the Area Fundraising Manager for Sue Ryder Care, commented; “A charity cricket match is a fantastic way to get everyone involved to make the most of our summer and raise money for Sue Ryder Care. The organisation that has gone into the day will ensure that everyone will have a great time. We can not thank Gala Bingo in Woking enough for their ongoing generous support.” ”
