We at GameVillage ensure that every month, amidst all the fun and frolic; we do not miss out on doing our bit for the society. We are proud of the kind of support that we get from our Bingo Community for our Charity Event each month. Our Charity event is held on the last day of every month. One full hour of games in one of the most bustling rooms on GameVillage is dedicated to a social cause. All funds collected from that hour-long session are donated to a Charitable Organization which is working for a cause chosen by the players.
The Charitable Organizations which are chosen each month are all noted ones, prominent for their work across multiple social concerns that they have devotedly fought against. Moreover it is the one chosen by the players. While we are not making a huge difference with our contribution every month, it is our token of support to the good work that is being carried out by these organizations in an attempt to improve the lives of so many people and fight for so many causes that are plaguing our society.
One such organization that we reached out to was Macmillan Cancer Support. This Charitable organization which believes that “No one should face Cancer alone”, aids in the battle with cancer by providing specialist health care, generating awareness and assisting with financial support to the people who are affected by this gruesome disease. The organization was founded in 1911 as the Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer, by Douglas Macmillan, following the death of his father from the disease. Remarkably, by 2013, MacMillan’s nurses and other health professionals reached more than 668,000 people!
A Macmillan Breast Cancer Nurse Specialist shared her experience working for the cause. She says that her main role is to provide information to her patients, because information empowers them and helps them in making an informed choice. Even lending a friendly ear to the people who are undergoing the pain is a humbling experience.
We owe our respect to these real – life saviours. The GameVillage Charity event aims to honour such generous souls.
Our Bingo family came forward to extend their support for the fight against Cancer and the September Charity event collected a handsome amount of £450 for the Macmillan Cancer Support organization. We received a token of appreciation from the organization and we want to thank all our players who generously contributed to the cause and made the effort worthwhile:
A big thank you from Macmillan
Thank you so much to all the Game Village Bingo Players for raising a fantastic £450.00 for Macmillan. We hope that you enjoyed it and that you will pass our thanks on to everyone who helped to make it a success. Your effort and enthusiasm will help us to be there for people affected by cancer and help them to feel more in control of their lives.
We at GameVillage, along with our lovely Bingo family, promise to continue our efforts in giving back to the society in whatever possible way. On behalf of the entire team, we would like to thank Macmillan for acknowledging our efforts.
