Bingo ♥ Variety


The bingo sector and bingo players’ love for Variety continues to raise important funds for the charity and shows no sign of diminishing: The Bingo Association would like to thank all its members and their customers for their fundraising efforts and support since 2015, bringing the current total of funds raised to over £1.6 million: 2019 saw over £305,000 raised.

November and December 2019 saw the Association present their 28th and 29th minibuses: in November, Carnforth School in Worcester were celebrating the arrival of their new bus with staff, pupils and representatives from Buzz Bingo and Majestic Bingo, and in in December it was the turn of the Beaufort School in the Midlands to celebrate the arrival of their new bus with staff, pupils and representatives from BJ’s Bingo.

Sara Wood, Head of School, Carnforth School said:

“We are most grateful to the Variety Club and The Bingo Association for their generosity which has enabled us to have the school’s first minibus. This will provide our pupils with greater opportunities to experience new events which would not have been possible due to ever increasing transport costs. These opportunities will help to broaden pupils horizons and further enrich our curriculum. It will also enable us to take part in sporting fixtures. The school’s first trip aboard our new bus will be to a hockey tournament next week. We know this bus will continue to provide very valued resources for many years to come.”

Steve Robinson, Head of School, Beaufort School said:

“Beaufort school were delighted to be approached by BJ’s Bingo via The Bingo Association to fund a brand-new minibus. This bus will be used to provide our children with real, immersive opportunities to learn, which support their work back in school. We can’t wait to train new drivers and use the bus for trips as part of our ‘Out and about’ topic in the spring term!”
