|UK-licensed online bingo site CrownBingo.com has announced that Orchid Cancer Awareness will be its preferred charity for June as part of its Everyman Cancer Awareness Month.|
The site will be holding a special series of games on June 23 between seven and nine o’clock in the evening with half of the prize pool going to the testicular cancer awareness organisation.
Donations from CrownBingo.com have already topped $2,000 since the site’s first charitable event in February. Last month, the site asked players to send in knitted cardigans, hats and boots for premature infant charity BLISS while also making a donation for each one received alongside holding special games.
'Without the help of generous individuals and companies like CrownBingo.com we would not be able to make the difference that these most vulnerable babies desperately need,” said Andy Cole, Chief Executive for BLISS.
“One in every eight babies in the UK is born too soon, too small or too sick to cope on their own. BLISS provides much-needed support and advice to families through what can be an incredibly difficult time, champions exciting new advances in care and campaigns for increased resources to improve the long-term outcomes for these babies. Thank you for your invaluable support.'
'The response to the knit-a-thon has been astounding,” said Dan Smyth, Managing Director for CrownBingo.com.
“We're very proud to be able to help such a worthwhile cause and it is fantastic to see so many of our members getting involved.'
