Sensational prizes on offer at charity fundraising event

A charity event Black Tie Bingo is fast approaching and is set to provide its guests with the opportunity to win some sensational prizes. Local company Marston Foods are organising the event in aid of local charity We Hear You, taking place on the 12th May at The Cheese and Grain. 

The evening, consisting of food, drink, music and comedy alongside the bingo looks set to provide some great entertainment for all those attending.

Comedian Ben Thurston will also be providing laughs aplenty during the bingo rounds when he appears as guest bingo caller. There’ll be a short interval during bingo where guests will be served cheese and sweet treats to prepare themselves for further rounds of bingo.

Guests will be entertained by two live Somerset bands. During the drinks reception, guests will be entertained by Safehaus (just back from a tour of Italy and currently recording their first EP). The evening will be rounded off with Soul Solution providing a performance that people can really get up and dance to.

The generosity of supporters has provided some amazing bingo prizes: • Dinner cooked in your own home by Masterchef Finalist, Arnaud • A week in a house in Andalusia • Hotel Stays • AMG Driving Experience at Mercedes Benz World • A day at Chepstow Races • Afternoon Tea at Charlton House • Meals in some great restaurants

As well as the bingo prizes, the event is offering one lucky winner the opportunity to win a designer Mulberry handbag worth in excess of £700.

As part of the Marston Foods and We Hear You event, they are offering anyone the chance to win this beautiful bag, you don’t have to be attending Black Tie Bingo, but the draw will take place at the event. Raffle tickets are £5 each and can be purchased from We Hear You at the Frome Town Hall.

Leona McDonald, commercial and sales manager at Marston Foods commented, “We are going to be playing five rounds of bingo, and books cost just £5 per round, which if you win any of the prizes is a real bargain! With no limit to how many books you can buy, you could be in with a great chance of winning one of many amazing prizes. Black Tie is completely 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, individuals and groups of 2 to 100 are welcome. The ticket price includes all entertainment, 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,  supporting local families who are affected by cancer or other life threatening illness.

Gemma Wilkes, fund-raising manager at We Hear You said, “As the event draws nearer we are thrilled at the amount of support it has generated. We are enormously grateful to Marston Foods for organising it on our behalf and to all the very generous donors of prizes for the event! This is going to be a fun-filled evening with something for everyone and we are excited to be a part of it.”
