Doncaster: all change

Club 3000 Bingo has confirmed that it has bought the bingo club in Laith Gate Doncaster, formerly owned by Mecca.

An agreement was reached in February this year and staff notified of the change of ownership, with the deal formally completing in early April. The transition was handled smoothly, with the club only closed on the 3rd and 4th April, for removal of branded equipment and installation of Club 3000 materials. All staff previously employed at the club were retained, including manager Samantha Cliffe.

The club re-opened on Thursday 5th April, ready to welcome players. Brian Fraser, founder of Club 3000, said: “We are delighted to bring the Club 3000 brand to Doncaster. We know how much bingo means to the community so can’t wait to welcome customers into our club to experience our first-class service and big prize money.”

Club 3000 now operate 23 bingo clubs, including Doncaster.
