Jo Brand to appear at Buzz Bingo Tooting for Alzheimer’s Society

Bingo Hall

Jo Brand set to appear at Buzz Bingo Tooting to mark milestone donation of over £500,000 for Alzheimer’s Society & Alzheimer Scotland.

Buzz Bingo has announced its Thank You charity event in partnership with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland, celebrating over £500,000 in donations for the organisations.

Taking place on Saturday 15th June at Buzz Bingo Tooting, the event will feature an appearance from award-winning comedian and Alzheimer’s Society Ambassador Jo Brand, who’ll receive the cheque from Buzz Bingo’s Chief Retail Officer Peter Brigden.

Open to all Buzz Bingo members, guests will be welcomed with a free drink on arrival before having the opportunity to meet and greet Jo Brand. Guests will then be in with a chance of winning one of ten £1,000 Full House prizes on offer throughout the evening, supported by even bigger prize money on the night.

With over £500,000 donated to Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland, Buzz Bingo has helped to fund community-based support for people with dementia across the whole of the UK. In England, Northern Ireland and Wales, twelve Alzheimer’s Society ‘Side by Side’ services have been funded, providing volunteer support to people with dementia to continue playing an active role in their community and doing activities they enjoy. In Scotland, the money has helped fund Dementia Resource Centres, providing advice, information, emotional support and social activities.

Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer’s Society, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you for such a milestone donation from Buzz Bingo. Currently, there are 850,000 people in the UK with dementia, with many feeling isolated and alone. This invaluable donation will help fund our ‘Side By Side’ service, ensuring people with dementia can continue to play active roles in their community and do the things they love with the support of volunteers.

“We’re delighted that our Ambassador Jo Brand could join us at the event and are extremely grateful for her continued support of Alzheimer’s Society.”

Peter Brigden added: “We’re so pleased to reach this milestone of over £500,000 in donations for Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland, the UK’s leading dementia support and research charities. The Thank You event at our Tooting club will be a moment of celebration, and we look forward to welcoming Buzz Bingo members to take part.”
