MECCA Bingo Hayes is launching its second Everyone Deserves a Christmas appeal to help individuals and families in need.

Mecca’s appeal involves all 71 clubs across the country and aims to provide hampers, allowing families to enjoy Christmas more comfortably.

Last year, it partnered with 52 charities to raise £185,000, providing 3,800 hampers across the country.

Mecca Bingo Hayes is raising money for Age UK Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent, which supports older people in those boroughs.

Mecca is calling on customers, neighbours and businesses to donate cash orgoods such as non-perishable food and drink or unopened toiletries.
