Bongo’s Bingo have announced that six special free shows exclusively for NHS staff and emergency workers will take place later this year.
One free show will take place at The Albert Hall in Manchester followed by shows in Liverpool, London, Glasgow, Leicester and Newcastle.
Dates and how to apply for tickets will be announced on Bongo’s Bingo’s social media.
During the crisis, Bongo’s Bingo have been raising money for the NHS through their live streams on Twitch. The team have also been working to do as much as possible for key workers, including using company vehicles and drivers to take NHS staff to and from work at The Royal NHS Hospital Liverpool.
Bongo’s Bingo’s co-founder Joshua Burke says the crisis has shown just how important the NHS and all emergency workers are.
“I think pretty much everyone now has been affected in some way or another by this terrible situation. I also think now that everyone is realising what an incredible job the NHS and emergency workers are doing for us all, putting their lives on the line each day.
“If we can help them even a little bit then it’s giving something back to these amazing women and men, and the free shows are a thank you from us for all of their efforts. My parents were both NHS nurses, so this is something very close to my heart.”
Bongo’s Bingo’s free to play online shows on streaming platform Twitch have been a huge success. Over 1 million people have streamed the shows over the first two weeks with thousands of pounds donated to the NHS. Twitch has already seen over 250k hours of streamed shows for anyone wanting some familiar Bongo’s Bingo escapism and mayhem. The streams are every Tuesday and Saturday each week.
