Bingo Night Raises Cash for Fire-fighters’ Charity

“The turnout this year was exceptionally good considering the economic climate, which helped us make an impressive total of �875.”

FIRE-FIGHTERS from Littleport Fire Station have handed over a cheque to The Fire Fighters’ Charity after raising a cool �875. The money raised at the station’s annual bingo night will go to help injured fire-fighters and their families.

The crew has organised the fund-raising event at Littleport Village Hall for the last 30 years and has raised thousands of pounds for the charity.

Watch commander Clive Allen said: “The turnout this year was exceptionally good considering the economic climate, which helped us make an impressive total of �875.

“My thanks go to everyone who came along and supported us on the night and we look forward to seeing even more people next winter.”
