Former Gogglebox star, Sandra Martin visited Beacon Bingo on Marine Terrace, Margate on Saturday August 12th.
Sandra, who made her debut in the very first series of Gogglebox back in March 2013, and went on to become a firm fan favourite prior to sensationally quitting the show last month, agreed to take time to meet and greet customers inside Beacon Bingo’s specially recreated Gogglebox house. Those attending had the chance to take photos, get autographs and play a few bingo games with the reality star.
She also said thanks for the hard-work both Beacon staff and customers have put into helping raise over £650,000 for the casino and gaming industry charity, CHIPS since 2005.
The CHIPS charity provides specialised wheelchairs for children and young people with severe mobility problems in the UK and Beacon Bingo, along with sister company, Cashino has now supplied more than 500 such chairs.
Graeme Corner, Beacon Bingo Margate general manager, said: “An opportunity like this was too good to miss! Our customers were all incredibly excited and it was great to have Sandra visit and personally thank them for all their fundraising efforts.”
“The event was a huge success and we were delighted to see both regular and new customers having such a good time. All of which clearly shows if you want the most exciting Bingo experience in Margate, Beacon Bingo is the place to come!”
