PRNewswire – Happy makers to the nation and the U.K’s fastest growing online bingo brand, GalaBingo.com, just can’t stop creating new world records whilst helping raise money for charity and giving players the chance to get involved at the annual Christmas party!
This time the Bingo giant is partnering up with respected aid organisation, Royal Voluntary Service, to raise money for a very good cause in the run-up to the festive season.
Nationally renowned Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) kindly give up their time for free to deliver a happier Christmas to thousands of lonely, older people ensuring they have a traditional festive meal and companionship at what can be a very sad and reflective time of year for many.
Throughout a unique promotional campaign, Gala will donate a percentage of its members’ game money to RVS whilst offering those players the chance to win one of 10 pairs of tickets to a VIP Christmas Party in London.
It’s during the party that the online Bingo giant will attempt an official new Guinness World Record™ using the biggest bingo card ever!
The idea to team-up and raise funds for another respected charity whilst setting a fun world record was a no-brainer for a brand which never rests on its laurels and reinforces the company’s market leading position as the industry’s ‘happiest’ online bingo site.
GalaBingo.com are no strangers to charity initiatives, previously raising over £10,000 for charity through a Guinness World Record™ title for the largest set of bingo balls on the former set of Coronation Street.
The latest partnership will help raise funds for Royal Voluntary Service volunteers to provide Christmas lunch clubs across Great Britain through three weeks of online Bingo games .
Players play qualifying games from 1[st]– 21st November with the winners of those games qualifying for any of 3 Grand Final Friday games with 10 pairs of VIP Christmas Party tickets up for grabs.
In attendance will be celebrity guests such as James Jordan of both Celebrity Big Brother and Strictly Come Dancing fame, plus the official Guinness World Record attempt to play with the biggest ever bingo card.
“I’m really excited to supporting a great cause,” says James, husband of dance sensation, Ola Jordan. “I totally love Christmas and to be involved in a campaign that will be helping to make lonely older people happy this festive season feels really good. We should all get behind the campaign and do what we can for a really worthwhile charity.”
“We were keen to do something to support such a relevant and essential charity particularly in the run up to Christmas,” said Gala Interactive Director of Gaming, Alison Digges.
“Bingo is all about sociability as our busy chat rooms will testify! Many of our players are older or have older people in their lives. We want to create awareness that older people can often be lonely and on their own but that needn’t be the case. By supporting the campaign we are doing our bit to ensure that loneliness is eliminated this Christmas.”
Kate Rooks, Senior Corporate Development Manager for Royal Voluntary Service, said: “Our partnership with GalaBingo.com will help us raise awareness of the devastating impact of loneliness and raise vital funds to help our volunteers make a difference to someone’s Christmas this year. A simple chat with someone can lift the spirits and change someone’s day – or life. “
