UK – Mecca Bingo pledges to be a safe space for allBy Phil - 20 April 2021
Ahead of reopening their clubs in England this May, Mecca Bingo is announcing its pledge to be a safe space for all.
In its 60th year of being at the heart of local communities, teams across their 72 clubs want to share the message that anyone can walk into a Mecca Bingo hall* and know that it is a place where they can feel comfortable and secure as well as somewhere they will always find a friendly face.
Whether a customer already attending a venue, or a passer by seeking help, now Mecca is building upon this commitment with a three-step pledge.
The first step is to provide somewhere quiet to sit for as long as needed. The next stage is to offer to make a call to a friend or family member, or in more serious situations, the emergency services. And third, is to help someone get home safely, assisting with making travel plans if needed.
John Dyson, Operations Director at Mecca Bingo, said: “At Mecca, we pride ourselves on being a safe space for all – that includes customers, local residents and anyone who passes by one of our clubs.Whatever the situation, our doors are open and there will always be a friendly face at Mecca”.
