On the first Friday of every month the North Thompson Activity Centre hosts a fundraising Bingo at the Barriere Seniors Hall. The event is an ongoing fundraiser for the Centre’s After School Program held on school days at The Ridge. Last Friday’s Bingo saw 78 people attending and raised approximately $900 for the Program. Bingo spokesperson, Judy Armstrong, noted that at each Bingo the Senior’s Society cook up a different meal in their hall’s kitchen, so that when the doors open at 5:30 p.m. attendees can eat and socialize before the Bingo starts at 6:30 p.m. “We have an amazing group of volunteers who come out to help each month with this worthwhile fundraiser,” said Armstrong.
