On Wednesday, 8th June 2022, several prominent members of the British bingo industry arrived at Newfriars College in Stoke-on-Trent to present the Bingo Association’s 35th Variety Sunshine Coach. The Association’s chief executive, Miles Baron took the opportunity to hand over the keys to the college’s head, Rob Millington, who was joined by several of the college’s students. The ceremony was also attended by three Buzz Bingo managers.
Over the past 5 years, the Bingo Association has managed to raise £1.6m for the charity, Variety. Bingo players have also helped make this phenomenal feat possible by taking part in special events online and in-club. The Variety Sunshine Bus will help Newfriars College students who have special educational needs get to and from college, and it will also be used to deliver education tours and daily trips to the local community.
