Bingo house adds to £500,000 charity pot

A LEITH bingo house has helped raise £500,000 for a cancer charity.

The Mecca branch was one of almost 100 across the UK raising funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Events included sponsored body waxes, head shaves and royal-themed tea parties. Clubs have also organised football tournaments and tombolas.

Mark Harrington, general manager of Mecca Leith Capitol, said: “I’ve been so impressed with the drive and enthusiasm the team members have shown when it comes to organising fundraising events at the club. The impressive result achieved goes to show just how hard everyone has worked. We mustn’t forget that this fantastic figure is also down to our generous customers – we wouldn’t have been able to do this without them.”
