Gala Bingo promises extra support to Sue Ryder Care

By Becky Mosley - March 31 2010

Gala Bingo have been long time supporters of the Sue Ryder Care charity and have pledge to do even more for them by increasing the number of charity games they offer on their online bingo site.

In 2009 Gala smashed the £1 Million target they had set themselves and this year they want to better the figure by another £500,000 and give Sue Ryder Care an amazing £1.5 Million.

From this week the special Sue Ryder ‘Link Game’ will now kick off at 7.24pm every day in 11 of 90 ball online uk bingo clubs instead of just once a week on a Tuesday.

Ten percent of all the fundraising games ticket sales will be given to the charity ensuring expert care is given to people living with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, stroke and Huntington’s Disease.

Not so long ago Gala Bingo were running the ‘Mrs Obama’s Bingo’ campaign which was responsible for raising £10,000 for Sue Ryder Care by grabbing media and public interest during Barack Obama’s inauguration with help from his bingo loving step mother, Kezia. There have also been a number of internal fundraising events including a ‘Back to the Floor’ night where a senior management team hosted an evening in Woking Gala Bingo Club and even an Everest Climb which saw 25 staff play the World’s highest ever game of bingo!

Dr Colin Morgan who heads corporate responsibility for Gala Coral Group commented; “We’re proud to help Sue Ryder Care make a real difference to the lives of thousands of people each year. By increasing the frequency of the Sue Ryder Care Link Game from weekly to daily we are expecting to make a significant contribution to the overall Gala Coral Group target of £1.5miliion. We know the games are popular and we’re expecting our customers to be as enthusiastic as ever about supporting the charity.”

Back in 2008 Gala Coral staff voted for Sue Ryder Care to become the nominated charity for the group and they have been raising funds for the charity ever since.

If you want to show your support for this worthy cause simply log onto Gala Bingo and play the Sue Ryder Care ‘Link Game’ which plays every night at 7.24pm.
