Staff raise cancer funds

Have your say

STAFF at Grosvenor Casino and Mecca Bingo in Sheffield are celebrating after helping raise £1 million for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The Rank Group, which owns both the Mecca and Grosvenor Casinos, began working with the charity in January 2010 and staff raised the much-needed funds by holding a host of different activities.

Mecca Sheffield general manager, Steve Bell, said: “It’s amazing to know that we’ve contributed to raising such a massive amount of money for Marie Curie.

“There are no words to describe how important the work they do is.”

Marie Curie fundraiser Jemma Halman, said the money will fund 50,000 hours of nursing for terminal patients.
