Bingo for charity to help Starlight children

  Monday 23rd June 2014

There are many good causes to support in order to help out others the best way we can. Amongst the many foundations which help those who are worse off than the rest of us there is the Starlight Children’s Foundation based in the UK. Established in 1986, Starlight’s mission is to grant once in a lifetime wishes to seriously and terminally ill children.

The aim of the Starlight Foundation is to bring happiness into the lives of the children who are seriously and terminally ill by providing entertainment in hospitals and hospices as well as doing all their best to grant their wishes. In order to bring some joy into the lives of those children, Lucky Pants Bingo has teamed up with Starlight Children’s Foundation to raise money and make their wish come true.

Lucky Pants Bingo is having a big game at the online bingo site on Wednesday the 25th of June at 9.30pm in the Bingo for Charity room. The card price is at £1 and instead of having a fixed pot, the more cards bought into the game the greater the pot will be. Lucky Pants Bingo will match the final jackpot amount and donate it to Starlight, so you will be a winner as well as the children. A 90 Ball game, the first line winner will receive 20% of the pot, 2 Line will get 30% of the pot and Full House winner will receive 50% of the pot. Plus all 1TG card holders will share £300.

Further ways through which Lucky Pants Bingo and its members are helping Starlight are through Spin for Charity, Text to Donate and Office Collection. The Spin for Charity is a £2K Slots Tourney where the winner will get a share of £1K and Starlight wins £1K. Text to Donate is an easy way for Lucky Pants Bingo players to participate in this good cause by texting PANT22 along with their chosen amount to 70070. Plus after having made their donation through text, players can add at NO extra cost an extra 25% Gift Aid, to help further and that too at no cost.

The Office Collection is another good way through which the Lucky Pants members can help the children by running their own “Wear Your Lucky Pants to Work Day” at their work place and ask participants to make a donation to Starlight.  Collections should be posted as cash or cheques made out to Starlight Children’s Foundation by June 30th 2014 to: Starlight Children’s Foundation, P0 Box 4267, Goring, Reading RG8 0AP. 

Join the good cause into making a difference into the seriously and terminally ill children of the Starlight Children’s Foundation alongside Lucky Pants Bingo.
