Last night the GSPCA held the first bingo night of 2015 at the Market Bistro.

To help celebrate Australia Day, it was held with an Australian theme with a giant kangaroo calling out the numbers.

Last year the GSPCA held 5 bingo evenings and we have a total of 11 planned for 2015 and the first one last night started off with a great attendance and even attracted a crowd of Australians who wanted to celebrate their National day.

The event was held in the Inner Market Building where tables of 10 to two were set up for those attending.

Australian banners, flags and posters decorated the room, as well as information and posters of the work of the GSPCA and animals in need of homes.

Each table was named after an animal that the GSPCA has either recently helped or in the care of the Shelter, many of which are in need of new homes.

A total of 8 games of bingo were played with lots of other games and raffles.  Half way through the evening the team at the Market Bistro served an Australian themed buffet.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager and event organisor said "We had a fabulous Australian Day Bingo fund raiser for the GSPCA last night at the Market Bistro."

"We had Australians wearing their National flag and we decorated the room to help celebrate."

"There were prizes for the first line and house of each of the 5 games and the winner of the jackpot of £50 kindly donated it back to the GSPCA which was wonderful."

"We have another 10 bingo nights planned at the Market Bistro with the next one having an Alice In Wonderland Birthday theme to celebrate our 142nd anniversary on Wednesday 11th February during our GSPCA Purple Week and please call 257261 or book your tickets through our website."

"A huge thank you to all that supported our Australian Bingo last night and to the team at the Market Bistro for the great food and service."

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "For only £14.50 for adults you get 8 games of bingo and your meal which is a buffet style half way through the evening."

"Each night we decorate the inner Market Building and always encourage fancy dress and a musical instrument."
