A local church, Parish of Simon of Cyrene in Acacia Road, Parkwood Estate, invites young and old to its bingo event on Saturday 27 July.

This is a fundraising event aimed at uniting and inspiring the public to give back. It targets more than 150 people.

Treasurer Marlene Viljoen says they hope to raise R10 000 on the day. Proceedings will go towards the funding of the day-to-day costs of the church that is 50-years-old.

Most of the church members are less fortunate, hence the appeal for support.

There will be no entry fee, but bingo booklets and refreshment will be on sale. Donations will also be accepted.

She says participants stand a chance to win a variety of prizes which include small electrical appliances and vouchers.

The event starts at 15:00 and ends at 19:00.
