Mecca Bingo Joins Jabs Army Initiative

Mecca Bingo is delighted to be joining Jabs Army, a nationwide call to arms from The Sun newspaper to support the all-important Covid-19 vaccination roll out.

Jabs Army calls for volunteers to join the over 50,000 people needed to assist with vaccines in crucial steward roles, committing to only two six-hour shifts per month at their nearest vaccination hub.

As an integral part of many local communities, Mecca Bingo wants to do its part to support the process of protecting the UK against Covid-19 and get the nation back on its feet. Mecca is appealing to its over 2,000 team members across the UK to sign up as a volunteer, and has offered a number of its car parks as vaccination sites.*

In addition to Jabs Army, Mecca has a number of existing initiatives in place to support local people - from the Everyone Deserves a Christmas campaign in which Mecca’s customers raised £185,000 for families in need, providing £50 food and gift hampers, community kitchen activities supporting local charities, education hampers for local families and free meals for Blue Light Card holders, Mecca Bingo has been showing the meaning of community.

John O’Reilly, Chief Executive of the Rank Group Plc, said: “Jabs Army is a brilliant collaboration with The Sun and something we’re very proud to be a part of.

With over 2,000 staff nationwide, we often find ourselves at the heart of our communities.  Our venues and teams offer a familiarity that lend themselves ideally to being used for the vaccine roll out – a friendly face awaits at our Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casinos sites.”

Throughout the pandemic, Mecca’s clubs and online teams have remained in close contact with its customers and communities, offering information and assurance when it’s needed most. Mecca team members and customers can sign up to volunteer for Jabs Army at <>
