HideOut goes Bongos at the Bingo

 

Founder Patron, Mission Mars, holds legendary bingo party night to raise funds for HideOut Youth Zone.

Founder Patron, Mission Mars and Bongo’s Bingo, the legendary bingo party hosted by Jonny Bongo, joined forces on Wednesday 4th May to put on a fundraising event at the Albert Hall, Manchester.

Over 300 people attended the event which raised an incredible £50,000 for HideOut Youth Zone.

The money raised will go toward the annual running costs of the Youth Zone, as well as consistent support to provide excellent services and opportunities for Manchester’s young people.

The event was hosted by Jonny Bongo and guests were treated to a 3 course dinner, drinks flowing all night, two lively games of Bongo’s Bingo and a charity auction. Mission Mars leadership team and venue teams all volunteered to work the event.

Jo Branney, People & Culture Director of Mission Mars, said:

Our Bongos Bingo event in aid of HideOut was a fantastic evening. Our guests and teams thoroughly enjoyed the night, the atmosphere was magnificent, and we are delighted to have raised vital funds to support the young people of Manchester. We would like to thank Bongo’s Bingo and all our partners, suppliers and colleagues for their support. We look forward to continuing our work in supporting HideOut this year.

Head of Fundraising and Communications at HideOut Youth Zone, Lara Partridge, said:

“Mission Mars pulled off an incredible event which really put the fun in fundraising. It was a great triumph to have so many people in one room to engage with HideOut’s story.

“Founder Patrons are the key to the success of HideOut Youth Zone, and we’re very lucky that our Founder Patrons are so passionate about supporting young Mancunians in whatever way they can.”

Founder Patrons of HideOut Youth Zone are a group of individuals and companies united by a determination to give young people across Manchester somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.

HideOut’s Patrons’ contributions combine to create circa 60% of annual running costs, as well as consistent support to provide excellent services and opportunities for Manchester’s young people.
