How does one of the UK’s best Online Bingo Sites help a charity that is looking to get men checking for the early signs and symptoms of prostate, bowel and testicular cancer? By setting a World Record of course; and it promises to be quite an event.
This one off bingo game is to be held by Gala Bingo on the cobbled streets of Coronation Street in Manchester and is going to be played in conjunction with the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign. Gala Bingo is officially going to try for the Guinness World Record for the biggest set of bingo balls, and many of its members have been invited.
The event is all about large bouncy bingo balls being thrown from the windows of the houses on the sets of the iconic soap opera they attempt to set an official world record for the largest set of bingo balls.
The great game plays on the 18th of July and tickets have been given away for it over the last few weeks at the site. Lucky winners won tickets playing an exclusive range of Coronation Street themed Bingo and Slots games.
The host for the game will be Alison Hammond, star of the show This Morning. She’ll also be the bingo caller for the evening, calling the balls for this special 90 ball game. A massive cheque worth £10,000 will later be presented to the charity, this sum being raised for the occasion by the players of Gala Bingo.
This event also marks the launch of Gala Bingo’s latest game, ‘Corrie Bouncy Balls’, which led to this unique partnership with this particular charity. As the website’s Director, Alison Digges said, “We wanted to do something special for the launch of ‘Corrie Bouncy Balls’, something involving balls! We love the innovative, educational approach MCAC takes, so we’re delighted to work with them.”
Fans of Coronation Street will also get to tour the former set and meet past actors including Shobna Gulati (Sunita Alahan), Sherrie Hewson (Maureen Webster), Steven Arnold (Ashley Peacock) and Adam Rickitt (Nick Tilsley).
