On Valentine's Day 2019, Carers Trust is celebrating the 5th anniversary of its partnership with Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casinos. In 5 years, the partnership raised over £2 million to support unpaid carers across the country.
To celebrate this huge milestone, we would like to invite all Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casinos employees and customers, as well as all Rank staff, to take part in our Miles for Carers Smiles Challenge: collectively walking/running/cycling 10,000 miles over the course of 5 weeks.
Why 10,000 miles?
This is the number of unpaid carers that have been supported through the partnership with Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casino. By logging a mile for every single one of them, we want to show that we care and that we want to keep making a difference to their lives.
Funds raised will go towards our Carers Funds, supporting unpaid carers with small grants to help them in their caring role, as well as supporting them in crisis situations.
