Colleagues of Mecca Bingo and the Rank Group have combined to set a new world record for the largest game of office bingo.
In total 235 people participated in a quick fire game at their Maidenhead headquarters, smashing the previous best of 97 in the Philippines which stood for five years.
Caroline Webb, spokesperson for Mecca Bingo, said: “We had great fun coming together as a business to smash this world record – which only seems appropriate for us as one of the country’s leading bingo companies.
“Not only was this an opportunity to put our own bingo skills to the test, but it was also a great way for us to help raise further funds and awareness to support the fantastic work that carers across the UK do.”
All who took part made a donation to the company’s charity partner, Carers Trust, which offers support to the UK’s seven million carers.
Gail Scott-Spicer, CEO of Carers Trust, added: “We were delighted to hear about the Mecca Bingo and Rank Group teams fundraising success in the name of Carers Trust.
“The money raised by team combined with the amazing amounts of money raised throughout the year will help Carers Trust to support thousands of unpaid carers through a grants fund, to give carers the equipment and skills they need to carry out their caring roles, whilst also ensuring that their own health and wellbeing are looked after.”
