The Gala Bingo group becomes the latest bingo company to show that it cares, after its 19,000 employees were given the opportunity to join the Pennies From Heaven scheme and donate their pennies to the Sue Ryder Care charity.
Pennies from Heaven is a simple concept, whereby participants have the pennies on their salary slips rounded off to the nearest pound, with all the ‘spare change’ being donated to a charity.
Gala Bingo decided to adopt the scheme and from this month, all of its employees across the United Kingdom can join up and have their pennies donated to one of the country’s most dedicated and worthy charities.
The Managing Director for Pennies From Heaven, Anthony Law, said about the new partnership: “We are delighted that Gala Coral staff have been given the opportunity to give their pennies to Sue Ryder Care via this simple scheme. Whilst as individuals the amounts are small, but if all of Gala Coral’s staff got involved, in excess of 150,000 GBP could be raised. Who said that pennies don’t add up?!”
Gala Coral staff have a cap of 99 p per month on their donations, meaning that they won’t even feel the amount. Gala Coral said: “It’s a fantastic way to raise much needed money for Sue Ryder Care and it’s as simple as a signature. We are asking Gala Coral employees if they notice the pennies on their wage slip and if the answer is no, then donate them to Sue Ryder Care and let their pennies help the charity make a real difference to the lives of thousands of people it cares for.”
Kudos to Gala Bingo – not only for their social initiatives but also for their fantastic range of bingo games!
