Bongo’s Bingo goers are being encouraged to help a Liverpool charity when they attend the Christmas editions of the shows.
Unwanted toys will be collected for children’s charity KIND during the popular Camp and Furnace based party.
A donation box will be at the entrance of the Baltic Triangle venue from 6-8pm between 13 and 23 December, as the cause aims to make a difference to as many of the region’s disadvantaged children and their families as possible this festive season.
Anyone not attending Bongo’s Bingo who wishes to donate can also drop off toy deliveries.
Any unwanted toys which could be enjoyed in a new home are welcome, and gifts for older children can be donated too.
Toiletries, clothing, books, DVDs, games and toys of all kinds will be accepted by the charity, and there will also be a cash donation box at each Bongo’s Bingo show collecting funds to buy Christmas food hampers for struggling families.
Stephen Yip from KIND says: “The KIND Christmas Appeal is over the moon to be working with Bongo’s Bingo this Christmas. This support will help us make Christmas very special for over 7,500 disadvantaged children and their families from within our community.
“Between us we shall give them a Christmas to remember and not one to forget. With this support we shall be able to bring some light into the lives of our families in what otherwise would have been a very dark and bleak time.
“Thanks to all at Bongo’s Bingo and Camp and Furnace for helping us to make a real difference this Christmas.”
Bongo’s Bingo co-founder, Joshua Burke adds: “We are thrilled to be working with a really important charity whose work is integral to helping many families in the city, especially at this time of the year.
“We hope everyone can dig deep and bring any unwanted toys, presents and gifts – as well any cash donations – during our Xmas shows.”
