A POPULAR city transport café is offering some in-car entertainment this weekend with a special bingo session in aid of Highland Hospice.
Café V8 on Henderson Road hosts regular bingo sessions throughout the year in aid of the Hospice and other good causes, but with lockdown restrictions curtailing indoor activity, manager David MacDougall is taking the game outside with its first car bingo session tomorrow evening Saturday July 25 from 6pm.
Participants can register their car for £10, with a further £10 for each person playing and a range of prizes on offer. Numbers will be called through the café PA system and winners can honk their car horns to call house.
The Hospice fundraiser had been planned before the lockdown, along with regular customer Angie MacFarlane, but the long delayed event could be just the first of several.
"If it works, we will probably do a few in the future. As you can imagine, on the last 17-18 weeks charities have been hit hard in not being able to raise money, and Angie is very good for the Hospice, so we said this would be the first one," Mr MacDougall said.
"Response has been good so far. We already have in excess of 20 cars. We are looking to raise £1000 and I think we will do that."
