Bongo’s Bingo has announced they are working with KIND this Christmas.
KIND are a Merseyside based charity who work to help disadvantaged children and their families, and this Xmas the aim is to make a difference to as many as possible across the region.
Bongo’s Bingo would like to invite all customers coming to the forthcoming Bongo and the Beast shows to donate any unwanted toys in the run up to Christmas. There will be a donation box for gifts by the entrance from 6pm-8pm running from Wednesday 13th December until the last show before Christmas on Saturday 23rd December. People can still make deliveries during these times at Camp and Furnace if they are not coming to any of the festive shows.
So if anyone has any unwanted toys around the house, from items the kids might have grown out of to bits and bobs in storage which could be enjoyed in a new home, this is the time to pass them on and help make a difference to those who really need it this Xmas. Gifts for older children are as welcome as they are for younger kids too, so things like toiletries are always welcome, along with clothing, books, DVDS and games, and toys of all kinds. There will also be a cash donation box before and each show to buy Christmas food hampers for struggling families – every pound raised will go directly to families in need at Christmas.
Stephen Yip from KIND says: “The KIND Christmas Appeal is over the moon to be working with Bongo’s Bingo this Christmas. This support will help us make Christmas very special for over 7,500 disadvantaged children and their families from within our community. Between us we shall give them a Christmas to remember and not one to forget. With this support we shall be able to bring some light into the lives of our families in what otherwise would have been a very dark and bleak time. Thanks to all at Bongo’s Bingo and Camp and Furnace for helping us to make a real difference this Christmas.”
Bongo’s Bingo co-founder Joshua Burke says: “We are thrilled to be working with a really important charity whose work is integral to helping many families in the city, especially at this time of the year. We hope everyone can dig deep and bring any unwanted toys, presents and gifts – as well any cash donations – during our Xmas shows.”
Founded in 1975 by Stephen Yip MBE, KIND works with thousands of children, young people and their families across Liverpool and the greater Merseyside area pioneering new and imaginative ways to help them cope with many forms of disadvantage.
