Mecca 40 Year Anniversary

Dedicated Mecca Bingo employee Marilyn Hanrahan celebrates 40 years of service 

A dedicated Mecca Bingo employee from the Sale Mecca club is celebrating 40 years of service this month.
Marilyn Hanrahan started her career with Mecca Bingo in 1975, where she began her journey through the company. Marilyn is now a Senior Assistant and has had the pleasure of watching Mecca Bingo grow and change over the past 40 years.A favourite memory for Marilyn is the last grand opening at Mecca Bingo in Sale, as she fondly remembers all her colleagues and customers were “singing and dancing all day and night.”
Marilyn commented: “There have been a lot of changes over the years, especially the changes in food and Mecca Bingo did not have waitresses back when I started.

We used to start work a lot earlier than 9am and we had such a laugh together, making hundreds of sandwiches and baking our own cakes!”
David Walmsley, club manager at Mecca Bingo Sale, added: “Working with Marilyn has been a constant pleasure over all these years and I think Marilyn’s achievements are truly worth celebrating.
I can’t thank Marilyn enough for all her hard work over the years and I believe her dedication to Mecca Bingo in Sale is extremely admirable.”
