Take the Family Bingo Challenge

1024 724 Suzanne Brennan

With only a couple of weeks left of the summer holidays, now is the time to put the screens to one side and make our time together count.  Even better – to do this whilst supporting the thousands of seriously ill children isolating in hospital or at home this summer

We’ve created a fun and free Family Bingo Challenge in partnership with the UK’s leading family experiences platform,  Families can fill the last couple of weeks of the summer holidays by completing a series of brilliant challenges ranging from arts & craft to sports & active, drama and poetry and everything in between! You don’t need any equipment to get started, just the desire to take part and fundraise.

“Whether you decide to complete the bingo card in an afternoon or over the course of two weeks, your family will have lots of fun taking part,” says Lucy Jackson, CEO of Spread a Smile.  “As the rest of the country slowly returns to a new normal, seriously ill children must continue to watch from their beds.  By participating in our Family Challenge Bingo you will be helping to spread joy and laughter at a time when the greatest difference is measured in smiles.”

Hannah Feldman, CEO of adds “Lockdown has been hard on families across the UK and the Family Bingo Challenge has been designed to help us come together, share some laughs, make some memories before school begins again, and help the thousands of seriously ill children in hospital this summer. Join us and help make the end of the summer holidays that bit more meaningful all round”.
