80-Year-Old Raises Thousands as Bingo Master

The exact amount that Blanche Gibbs, 80, has raised for various charities as the bingo master at her church is unknown but one thing is for sure, she has helped many. The amount of cash that Gibbs has raised is thought to be near £40,000.

Gibbs said: 'I just like doing it, you get fun in it, the people who come are regulars and they come from different villages, they are all happy and they like what I give them.

'To be honest I wish I had started doing it sooner!'

As to the money, she is not fazed.

'I don't take any notice of the amount of money, I just know I have done it.

'I like doing it, because I am doing it for something that needs it. Wouldn't anyone be happy, doing something for other people?'

Gibbs has been in charge for bingo nights every month for the past 13 years straight. She gives away 45 prizes for bingo including food. Winners have been known to win themselves an English breakfast.

She gives to community groups such as Ludham Primary School and Nursery as well as a charity for retired greyhounds.
