The menu included critter cocktails, mealworms, buffalo worms, creepy crawlies, with all these lies on a bed of lettuce sprinkled with some dry cricket flour.


The team from Chester put in all their efforts in these charity fundraising campaigns. Thanks to all those who keep up with the consistency sacrificing their time, money and attention to someone who really needs them. This is a good example of how companies should be focusing on how to give back to the community in a memorable way. It is not a common thing to find a company raising such a big amount dedicated to charitable purposes. Therefore we appreciate the efforts and dedication made by everyone at Mecca Bingo Birkenhead who contributed to making this such a big success.


The Rank Group chief executive commended the act and expressed his pride with his team in their support at reaching the £2m milestone. He said that his team worked hard throughout the year to make sure they genuinely offer the best they could give to our charity fundraising programs. He added, “the achievement would not have been possible if all employees could not have offered their dedication and incredible support.” For sure it seems the company’s goals are well aligned alongside its employees no wonder chief executives from both companies noticed about the unity in how goals are achieved in Mecca Bingo was a thing of common interest to all. Gilles Meyer, the chief executive of Carers Trust, pointed out more on the humanity side of it.

Some of these carers find themselves in desperate needs for things that charity funds will be of great help to them.
