As is the case in many businesses, both online and offline, companies offering the same product or service are in strong competition with each other and that’s certainly the case with Mecca Bingo and Gala Bingo.
However, in an effort to raise money for their individual charities, the two giants of the online and retail bingo business are putting that healthy competition to good use by hosting a charity football match.
Burying The Bingo Dabber – Gala Bingo and Mecca Bingo
The dabbers will be put away and staff from a variety of clubs across the south east will be taking part in the game that kicks off at 7.30pm at Maidstone United at The Gallagher Stadium.
Gala Bingo is raising money for Variety, their chosen charity and Mecca Bingo are aiming to generate donations for Carers Trust.
If you are a football fan then why not pop down to the event on the 28th July and pick a team to cheer on, or support both sides. It doesn’t cost anything to be there but there will be collection buckets around for voluntary donations if you feel so inclined.
Gala And Mecca Bingo Charities
About Variety – Gala Bingo
Variety was one of the first charities set up in the UK to be founded especially for children and young people.

The three core initiatives of the charity are freedom, future and caring.
About Carers Trust – Mecca Bingo
As the name suggests, the Carers Trust offers recognition, services and support to those who are caring for a friend or family member who is ill in any way.
They work to support carers in the homes by providing information, replacement care, support and much more besides. Their goals are to make sure that unpaid carers have access to all services that they need to live their lives too.
