This post was written by Jonny Morton as part of a collaborative project.Leading UK online Bingo brand, GalaBingo.com has teamed up with Male Cancer Awareness Campaign (MCAC) to raise money for testicular cancer, by donating proceeds from their Coronation Street games to the charity from 20th June to 3rd July. The partnership is looking to raise over £10,000 in donations as well as encouraging bingo players to do their bit for the men in their life!June was Men’s Health Month, but being aware of the unique health concerns that affect boys and men is an everyday issue. The Male Cancer Awareness Campaign aims to educate men and their partners about the importance of early detection, as well as building a culture where embarrassment does not prevent them from addressing problems with intimate parts of their bodies.MCAC has a history of running fun charity campaigns, from ‘Mr. Testicles’, to ‘Going Commando’, and the latest partnership with Gala Bingo will see the Bingo brand aim to break the Guiness World Record for a game of bingo played with the biggest bingo balls! Even better, the World Record Attempt will take place on the set of Coronation Street, under the watchful eye of a Guinness record adjudicator as well as some famous Ex Corrie stars joining in the fun.GalaBingo.com players will have the chance to play in the game on the street and enjoy a celebrity filled party by playing in special Coronation Street Bingo and slot games.Director of GalaBingo.com Alison Digges commented: “We are delighted to be joining up with the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign for our World Record attempt and we hope that the promotional games and the event itself will raise a lot of money and more importantly additional awareness for this very important charity”.Whether you choose to join in the fun at Gala Bingo, make an independent donation, or just take the time to check yourself, make sure you do your bit to win the battle against cancer.
