The National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI) will be holding an exciting bingo night in aid of the charity on March 28th.

The event is being organised by local Crumlin woman Tracy Kavanagh and a group of dedicated volunteers. Being held in Crumlin’s Village Inn.

It is one of the most popular events on the calendar for the national sight loss agency.

NCBI’s Crumlin shop are holding a bingo night on March 28th.

Tracy runs the NCBI shop in Crumlin Village, and expects a large turn out for the event.

“I run this fundraising night twice a year and the support from businesses and the community is fantastic.

I get excellent prizes, all free, and everybody rows in behind us. It is the community at its very best,” Tracy said.

People know the work the NCBI does and they know that the charity needs funds to provide services to people with varying levels of sight loss.

The people who come to the Bingo night on the 28th March will go away happy in the knowledge that they have had a super night out and supported a most worthy cause,” she said.

Tickets for the night are priced at €10 for a small book of bingo tickets, and €20 for a larger book of tickets, with all proceeds going to the NCBI.

Tracy goes on to say “We have regular and very loyal supporters who are regulars in our shop here in Crumlin Village and it is a lovely opportunity to get together with them for a social night out, we all enjoy the karaoke after the bingo and the craic is mighty!”
