Bingo – the game with a twist

Residents from Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend wanted to change the way they played bingo last week.

Instead of hearing the traditional ‘Legs Eleven’, ‘Two Little Ducks’ and ‘Two Fat Ladies’ residents shook it up by playing animal bingo.

Ruth Todd, Home Manager, said: “There were animal noises heard throughout the home followed by shouts of line and house. Although some of our residents preferred the more traditional game, there were still smiles all around. Bring on more animal bingo I say.
