St Rocco’s lockdown bingo set to return


AFTER raising a “jaw-dropping” £23,000 during the last lockdown, St Rocco’s “lockdown bingo” is set to return on Saturday, November 21st.

Organiser Chris Forster, son of Warrington Rugby League legend Mark, had been planning to run a bingo event but now because of the new lockdown restrictions he is taking the fund-raising back online.
The game will be played live on the Facebook page which is “Chris Forster Events”.
Players must join this Facebook page to play along as this is where the live stream will be.
To purchase tickets people need to inbox Chris Forster on messenger from today (Nov 9) but ticket sales will stop on Wed 18th November.
Chris said: “As always we will have some fantastic prizes for the FREE Raffle we do which is included in your ticket price and would love to see people at home in their fancy-dress costumes again.
“I am doing the bingo again whilst we are going into another lockdown mainly to try and support the Hospice again in these horrible times but also to help people have something to look forward to, following the success last time out I have received numerous messages asking me if I was doing it again which is a good start so hopefully everyone will get involved and do their bit to support St Rocco’s.”
