Bingo bosses raise charity funds going back to the floor

Gala Corals directors raise nearly £2k in aid of Sue Ryder Care

A number of Gala Coral Groups directors raised nearly £2k for Sue Ryder Care by hosting 2 Decembers evening bingo session at Gala Bingos Woking club in Surrey.

The session, which was open to the public, saw 10 of the companys directors go back to the floor with a couple calling two dedicated charity games of bingo and the others serving food and drinks to customers in aid of Gala Corals group charity Sue Ryder Care.

Sue Ryder Care provides expert and compassionate care to people living with conditions including Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke and Huntingtons Disease. Through a number of ongoing initiatives Gala Coral is aiming to raise £1million by 2010 to help the charity continue to provide care that liberates lives in 14 care centres and community based services across the UK.

It was a fantastic evening

said Damian Cope, Gala Coral Groups Chief Information Officer who called one of the dedicated charity games.

It was a great way to learn even more about our business directly from our customers and staff, while raising a fantastic amount for our group charity, Sue Ryder Care. We all really enjoyed the experience and want to thank everyone for their generosity and for making the evening such a great success.

The evening culminated in an auction which saw ferocious bidding on some great donations from companies such as SCC and BT and included a Samsung Netbook, 19” LCD Samsung plasma TV, a Wii Fit, a smoothie maker, a dolls house, BT portable digital telephones, BT Baby Monitor and a classic train set.
