There were plenty of 'good Samaritans' out to help the charity with a bingo night in Ellesmere last week.

The bingo night was held at the Ellesmere Comrades Club in aid of the Good Samaritans in Shrewsbury, with more than 50 people there to support the evening.

Between them, they raised £272.01, after expenses, in what was a great effort to support a charity that does vital work.

Maxwell Bussey, who put on the night, admitted he was delighted with how it went and thanked all those who took part.

He said: "Obviously my thanks go to everyone who came and raised the money, and thanks to everyone that donated prizes for the raffle on the night."

The next session of bingo will be on Friday, July 19 in aid of Whittington Castle, at the Castle Team Rooms.

Meanwhile, Maxwell is looking for support at the Oswestry Show for parking for the disabled and for members at the event in August.
