Raising funds and awareness for local charities in Worcestershire
Medical Accident Group (MAG) is getting its dabbers at the ready in preparation for their Charity Bingo Gala with colleagues at MAG and Harrison Clark Rickerbys.
Taking place at the Worcester Riverside Rowing Club, the money raised from tickets will go towards local charities in Worcestershire which MAG has worked with for many years, including Headway Worcestershire and Footsteps.
It’s set to be a fantastic evening, with lots of prizes to be won and colleagues are looking forward to getting together with friends for a great cause.

Research has shown that in this country a child is bereaved of a parent every thirty minutes. Each year, there are an estimated 400 children and young people living in Worcestershire who are affected by the death of a significant person in their lives.
Footsteps, which is an independent charity, enables children and young people to:
- Be able to talk about the person who has died
- Ask questions
- Express their feelings
- Have their fears and worries accepted.
