Mecca Bingo and Leeds Rhinos Supports ‘Everyone Deserves A Christmas’ Campaign
With the events of 2020 unfolding at a rapid rate, poverty is on the increase as many have already lost jobs and livelihood’s due to the pandemic. People who are struggling this Christmas will have a helping hand from Mecca Bingo as they launch the ‘Everyone Deserves a Christmas’ campaign.
Leeds Rhinos Volunteers
With the help of Leeds Rhinos volunteers, 30 hampers at £50 each will be distributed to some of the most vulnerable families in the community across the city of Leeds.
More and more vulnerable people are relying on food banks for basics such as pasta, rice, and other essentials but while most enjoy luxuries during the festive season, Mecca decided to spread a little luxury, ensuring people are not excluded at this time of the year.
Head of marketing at Mecca Bingo Carol Rhead said, “It’s been a year unlike any other, so we’re are thrilled to continue to give something back to our communities and will be incredibly grateful for any donations our loyal customers and supportive locals are able to make.”
Local businesses and individuals within the community have been contacted to contribute and collect Christmas related items to make up hampers for the most vulnerable.
These include potatoes and seasonal veg, pigs in blankets, gravy granules, cheese, mince pies, cream, pickles, juice, oranges and clementine’s, turkey, ham, crisps, custard, cranberry sauce, and other Christmas related foods.
Anyone interested in making a donation can drop goods off at Mecca Bingo Mayfair Leeds, Mecca Bingo Hunslet, Leeds, and Mecca Bingo Crossgates, Leeds on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday’s from 11 am-3 pm.
