Midlands Air Ambulance Gets A Full House With Gala Bingo!

Thanks to two weeks of fundraising, Gala Bingo in Wednesbury has raised over £1,500 for the MAAC.

The team at the bingo hall, along with some of their valued customers, took part in over a dozen activities during the fortnight, including a bike-a-thon, kiss-o-gram, car wash and waxing session and there was even a gunge tank on site for managers.

Tim Dobson, presenter for Gala Bingo in Wednesbury, comments: “We had so much fun on the fundraising fortnight and I’m really proud that our efforts generated £1,545 for such a worthy charity.”

Sarah Arnold, corporate fundraising manager for MAAC, adds: “It’s always great to see people undertake some unique and unusual fundraising activities and Gala Bingo certainly pulled out all the stops. Well done to everyone who took part and thank you for helping to keep our three helicopters operational across the Midlands.”
