STAFF from York’s Mecca bingo club will be donning trainers, dusting off bikes and digging out swimming costumes as part of a new initiative to mark the five-year partnership with charity, Carers Trust.

The partnership between Carers Trust and the Rank Group, which owns Mecca Bingo, first began in February 2014.

To celebrate this milestone, the Miles for Carers’ Smiles campaign aims to clock up 10,000 miles of movement while raising money for carers along the way.

Billie Myers, from Mecca York, said: “We’re calling on our team members alongside their families and friends in York, to walk, run, swim, cycle, row, skate or Zumba their way to clocking up some miles so we can reach a collective 10,000 in just five weeks.”

Friends, family, customers and other locals can join in by visiting
