In a response to the horrific tragedy in Manchester on Monday, Bongo’s Bingo’s show this Friday 26th May in Liverpool at the Camp and Furnace will be raising money for those affected by the bombing and the charities working to support them. Donations are also encouraged to the Manchester Evening News’ Just Giving fundraising page.
The team at Bongo’s Bingo have said: “After the tragedy of the attack in Manchester, our hearts go out to all those affected. All the love, support and hard work from members of the North-West community and emergency services made us feel immensely proud.”
“Whilst there’s very little we can do, like most people we feel we should try something. It seems strange to offer a party in the wake of what’s happened, but it’s all we know how to do and we want to help in any way we can.”
“For that reason, we would like to do another show this Friday at Camp and Furnace with 100% of proceeds going to those affected / charities working to support them.”
“We can’t fix what’s happened, but we feel strongly that these attackers win if we all go to ground and stop what we’re doing. If it helps a grieving family one tiny bit then this show will be very much worthwhile.”
New host Rick McSandwich will be taking control of bingo calling duties once again and making it a night to remember.
