When Pink Ribbon Bingo first launched in 1997, it was then the world’s first UK online bingo site which was created to raise funds for fight against breast cancer.
Over the years, our players and the team behind Pink Ribbon Bingo have raised many thousands of pounds for our partner charity Against Breast Cancer. We also help reduce the running costs of Against Breast cancer by sponsoring their website so that they can reach more people digitally.
The best part of Pink Ribbon Bingo is that the money raised is generated by the profit made by the site as well as through special fundraising events which are fully embraced by our players.
Players can enjoy their games and win like they could do on any other bingo site. However, here at Pink Ribbon Bingo, they also support the fight against breast cancer.
