The John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford has become the double beneficiary of an online bingo win, after Wink, the UK’s fastest growing online bingo site, matched a donation made by one of its £25,000 winners to purchase vital equipment for the hospital’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.

Myra Carbin, from Northampton, whose six year old daughter received urgent heart by-pass surgery when only four weeks old at John Radcliffe Hospital, used some of the £25,000 she won with Wink to purchase an infusion pump for the hospital that treated her daughter.

“It was such a surprise to win,” Myra told us. “The fact that it was so unexpected persuaded my husband and I that we should do enjoy it and do good things with it too. So we’ve had great experiences because of it and being able to help John Radcliffe Hospital is just the icing on the cake.”

And Wink Bingo took Myra and her daughter back to the hospital to present the cheque to hospital staff.

“We were very touched when we heard about Myra’s story and were keen to do what we could to help,” explains Wink Bingo’s Marketing Director, Maurice Karpes. “It’s a reminder that not only is bingo a lot of fun and you can win some fantastic prizes, it also presents an opportunity to put something back into the community and use what we have to do something good. We were delighted to be able to match Myra’s donation and buy more equipment for this amazing unit.”

Penny Hambridge, Children’s Development Officer at John Radcliffe Hospital, commented:

“We are extremely grateful to both Myra and Wink Bingo for their amazing donations to the Children’s Intensive Care Unit. Donations such as these enable us to buy equipment beyond what the NHS alone can fund and this is a wonderful example of how people in the Community can support the Hospital.”
