Employees of a bingo hall have received heaps of praise after managing to raise £50,000 for a selected charity!

The staff at a Bingo Hall in Walsgrave have performed a number of sponsored activities in order to raise the large sum.

Some of the activities include skydives, bikes rides, marathons, bingo supermarket reports and also the infamous Three Peaks Challenge which entails climbing Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike, the three highest peaks in the UK!

All of the money raised is going to be handed over to Sue Ryder Care. This charity provides four million hours of care every year for individuals suffering from cancer, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease and many other ailments.

Gary Colledge, general manager of the bingo hall, said: “I am just so proud of what we have achieved as a team. Six months ago I never would have believed that we could raise … the £50,000 grand total.”

Vicki Collins is the fundraiser at Sue Ryder Care and she has been astounded at the effort all the members of staff were willing to put in. That amount of money is going to make a tremendous difference!
