Kirsty McCutcheon, from The Regent Spalding, part of the Majestic Bingo family, was presented with a special Long Service Award last week by Michael Norbury, General Manager. Despite the club being temporarily closed due to fire damage, the surprise presentation was made on Friday 4th June, when Kirsty and players from The Regent went to sister club, Roman Bank in Skegness.
Originally from Northern Ireland Kirsty moved over the England in 1998 and started working for Majestic in January 2016 as Team Member, prior to which she had been a functional skills ICT Lecturer at Boston College.
Kirsty was no stranger to bingo when she joined The Regent team, having been a Majestic customer for many years, along with her mum who introduced her to the game and also lives in Spalding. Kirsty said, “I really enjoyed going to bingo as a customer, particularly the social part of it, and saw how much fun and interaction staff had with customers. Over time I got to know a few of the staff and the job looked like a good fun, and the club a friendly place to work. So I decided to apply for a job and have never looked back or regretted it.”
“The lockdown has really brought home to me how much I enjoy and missed the social side of the job, customers and staff. I am really happy to be back at work and with customers again, even though our club is currently closed – I was really surprised by my Award, which was presented to me at the Skegness club, with many of our regular customers there with us, which made it great.”
James Taylor, HR Director at Majestic Bingo Limited commented, “We really value our loyal team and these awards are lovely to present when they fall due. Kirsty is a great member of our Team at The Regent and we’re glad to have her.”
Kirsty and her mum have not had a big bingo win yet, but we asked Kirsty what she would do if she won £50,000, “Be really excited that’s for sure, then plan a family holiday after covid, get a new car and pay off some of my mortgage.”
