Bingo fans in the Newcastle area have clubbed to together to help a local school in need.
Teachers, parents and pupils came together to help raise funds to replace contaminated equipment after an outbreak of E.coli at Friarswood Primary School, the Sentinel reported.
A special bingo game was organised by the Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) in order to see pencils, crayons, erasers and beanbags replaced at the school.
The news further enhances the view of the UK's bingo community as a charitable bunch and comes after a huge number of charity events being arranged around the country.
Tracy Ellis, chairman of the PTA, told the news provider: "The school has dealt with the E.coli situation fantastically from start to finish.
"It has been a tough few weeks for the school, but, in a way, what has happened has brought the parents more together, and everyone wants to put it all behind us and look forward to the future now."
