A Charity Fundraiser But Not As You (Usually) Know It!

The amazing generosity of local people who have donated fabulous prizes has been the catalyst for a forthcoming fundraising event with a difference.  Organised by local company Marston Foods in aid of counselling support charity We Hear You, a Black Tie Bingo event is set to take place on Friday 12th May at The Cheese and Grain in Frome. This is a fundraising event that promises to tick all the boxes!

The evening will include a welcome drinks reception, where guests will be entertained by Somerset band Safehaus (just back from a tour of Italy and currently recording their first EP) and served delicious food and drink. The reception will be followed by games of bingo, with twenty-five exciting prizes to be won, including: 

* Dinner cooked in your own home by Masterchef Finalist, Arnaud

* A week in a house in Andalusia

* AMG Driving Experience at Mercedes Benz World

* Plus many more exciting prizes to be announced in the coming weeks!

Leona McDonald, Commercial and Sales Manager at Marston Foods, commented, “The bingo games will be hosted by the hilarious comedian, Ben Thurston. There’ll be 5 rounds of bingo, and books cost just £5 per round, which if you win any of the prizes is a real bargain! There’s no limit to how many books you can buy but the more you buy, the better your chance of winning. During the bingo there’ll be a short break where you’ll be served cheese & desserts (if you can squeeze it in!) and have the chance to show off your winnings so far. Black Tie is optional, just come looking fabulous and ready to have some fun. “

Once the bingo has finished and all the prizes have been won amazing band The Soul Solution will be taking to the stage to make sure that guests can round up the evening on their feet dancing and making the most of the event of the summer.

Tickets are just £25 per person, and groups of 2 to 100 are welcome. The ticket price includes all entertainment and food and drink, but doesn’t include bingo tickets and drinks required after the welcome reception. The bar will be open and you can order drinks to be delivered to your table, so that you don’t miss any of the bingo action. 100% of the profits made from this event are going to We Hear You.

Gemma Wilkes, Fundraising Manager at We Hear You, said. “ We are so excited about this event and enormously grateful to Marston Foods for organising it on our behalf and to all the very generous donors of prizes for the event! We are really looking forward to what promises to be an entertaining evening!’
