BINGO players in Halifax have helped raised hundreds of thousands for charity.

Mecca Bingo on Broad Street was one of 103 clubs across the UK which have together collected £287,000 for Marie Cure Cancer Care.

Graeme Ewart, manager of the club, said: “I’ve been so impressed with the drive and enthusiasm the team members have shown over the past year when it came to organising fund-raising events at the club. The impressive result achieved goes to show just how hard everyone has worked.

“We also must not forget that this impressive result is also down to our generous customers – we wouldn’t have been able to do this without them.”
