Full house as MP helps fundraising game
LLANELLI MP Nia Griffith recently called a game of bingo at Argos Bingo in Market Street, Llanelli, and celebrated the club’s fundraising for children’s charities.
Ms Griffith said: “It was great to call a game of bingo at Argos Bingo club on Friday and meet many of the local players. The manager, Nigel Griffiths, gave me a very warm welcome and told me about the excellent fundraising efforts the bingo players do for children’s charities.
“We raised more than £1,000 for the NSPCC and Variety the Children’s Charity, in addition to the £1,225 the customers and volunteers at Argos Bingo collected recently for Macmillan Cancer Support. I would like to thank everyone involved in making this happen, and I very much hope it will continue.”
Llanelli’s MP also attended a Bingo Association event in Parliament recently to celebrate the £1.3 million overall donation to Variety the Children’s Charity from bingo players and clubs nationwide. She joined Variety ambassador and Strictly Come Dancing winner Joe McFadden and bingo players from around the country, including Mr Griffiths from Argos Bingo in Llanelli.
