In total you managed to save £550.25 since November 2015, an impressive amount by all accounts!

On July 5th we made our 5th donation to Help for Heroes, taking the total amount donated at that point to an impressive £2,868.90! As is always the case when we make a donation, we received a letter thanking us just a few days later.

The letter thanks us for the donation and tells of his it is put to use supporting wounded soldiers and their families. If you read on, you will see a scanned copy of the letter.

Tidy Cupboard – Changes Afoot

Posted by on: Friday, Jul. 1st 2016 12:36 AM

As you will all know, for some time now we have seen a drop in the number of players in the Tidy Cupboard. This has continued for a while now and David and I have made a decision to change things around a little.

Rather than lose the room completely, something we don’t want to do, we’re going to try and revive it. How we plan to do that may sound a little odd but there is a method in our madness. However, it does mean that from 1st August 2016 the Cupboard is only to be open on the 1st Tuesday of every month.

Loyalty Rewarded At Tidy Bingo

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 2:47 PM

As regulars at Tidy Bingo will know, the network offers a loyalty reward scheme that sees you earn extra bonuses, cash back etc. as you rise through the ranks. As a little something extra, we’re going to introduce a form of loyalty scheme into the Tidy Cupboard too.

As you will have noticed, player numbers have been dropping of late in the Cupboard and as such, it doesn’t remain viable to keep giving away as many loyalty points as we have been whilst player numbers diminish.

Tidy Bingo Up For Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 1:23 PM

The Which Bingo Award shortlist has been announced today and once again Tidy Bingo has received a nomination. This year there isn’t a Best Boutique Bingo Site, the category we usually find ourselves in. For 2016, we have been nominated as Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site and for the first time since we launched, we’re going to put a bit of effort into winning.

It’s not that we don’t want to win, of course it isn’t, but we are always competing with brands we have bigger budgets and more players so it often feels like we are a non-starter. This year however, only five of the brands under the Jumpman Gaming hat have been nominated so our odds of winning are slightly better!

Catchphrase Competition – March 2016

Posted by on: Thursday, Feb. 25th 2016 1:29 PM

Can you believe it’s nearly March already? It seems like only yesterday that we were running Christmas competitions and rummaging in Santa’s Sack! Anyway, as the year rolls on, it’s time for another Catchphrase competition and your chance to win a selection of Tidy branded goods, maybe some Help For Heroes bits and bobs and even some bonus funds!

This time we’re going to do things a little differently (not much) and will be sending the competition by internal mail, external mail and posting on Facebook. We’re hoping this gets more people involved and who knows, with enough entries – we might even throw in a few extra prizes!

Ham And Egg Cups

Posted by on: Sunday, Jan. 24th 2016 5:36 PM

As some of you may know, I’m currently with Slimming World trying to shed a few stone. If you’ve never done this diet before then it’s worth knowing that foods are divided into categories and it is actually the only diet that I have done that I have found really easy to stick to. The only thing that I am not completely comfortable with is the weekly meetings, and whilst I know many get a lot from the meetings – they don’t really do it for me. If any of you guys want to slim along with me – feel free. I lost 6.5lbs in my first week….

That said, I have paid for 10 sessions, so I will do those and then probably just continue alone at home. Anyway, I digress, the reason for this blog post was to share one of the recipes that I made today, one that I really enjoyed and takes hardly any time to make. It’s a free food, so you can eat as many of these as you want.

Free Jackpot Game – The Outcome

Posted by on: Saturday, Jan. 23rd 2016 9:50 PM

I thought that I’d sit in the room and watch our biggest every free game take place tonight, the big £1000 jackpot. I wanted to see who were winners, and of course, report the outcome to all the Tidy Bingo players who were otherwise engaged.

In total there were a whopping 4,437 when the game got underway and I was on tenterhooks (as I am sure the players in the room were too).

Thank You, Thank You And Again, Thank You

Posted by on: Tuesday, Dec. 22nd 2015 7:38 PM

There are many things that I love about Tidy and for those of you that know me, you’ll know that it has always been a dream of mine to run my own bingo site. From player, to host, from host to writer and then writer to site owner, it took me ten years to get here but I did.

There have been ups and downs, as our blog readers know, but one of the biggest ups happened this week. Quietly beavering away in my office, the doorbell rings with a delivery…..

Tidy Quiz – 28th March 2014

Friday, Mar. 28th 2014 12:27 AM

It doesn’t seem like it was two weeks ago that we did the last quiz, time really is flying lately. It has been though and this means another is due today – a quiz where you can earn £2 cash just for answering five questions correctly.

As is always the case, the five questions posed won’t be general knowledge but are questions whose answers can be found here on the blog, over on the Facebook page or generally around the Tidy Bingo site. We try not to make them too difficult, it’s just a bit of fun. Ask your fellow roomies in the Tidy Cupboard tonight, we’re sure that they will help you out if you are stuck.

Coming Soon – Roomie Of The Month

Monday, Mar. 24th 2014 3:15 PM

As regular players at Tidy Bingo will know we are always keen to hear suggestions form our players as to how we can improve what we have to offer. Sometimes things are out of our control and whilst we can suggest changes to the network, we can’t actually implement them. However, when it comes to the promotions we do have control and it was recently suggested to us that we launch a Roomie of The Month promotion.

We think it’s a brilliant idea and as such are in the process of creating all the promotional content and pages required. We need your input a little further so if you could please complete the poll in this article we can make a decision as to how we structure things.

Why Play In The Tidy Cupboard?

Sunday, Mar. 23rd 2014 4:00 PM

As our readers will know we have our very own standalone room at Tidy Bingo. We’re the first (and currently the only) site on the 15 Network to offer this but we need your help to make it a success. At this point in time we have just a handful of our members who utilise the room but we want to see more Tidyer’s come and join in the fun we have each and every Tuesday and Friday.

What we need from you though is feedback as to what would make you more likely to come and play in the room? At Tidy Bingo we are open to suggestions from our players and have an email address where you can contact both David and myself, team@tidybingo.com.

Say What You See – Another ‘Free’ Competition

Tuesday, Mar. 18th 2014 12:35 AM

The ‘Say What You See’ Catchphrase competitions that we run on Facebook have certainly proved popular with players so we thought it about time that we get another underway. We don’t usually put any entry requirements on these free promotions but this one is a little different – it’s only open to players who have bought at least one ticket in the Tidy And The Troops games between now and 28th March.

There is a good reason for this, and a good cause of course – we want to sell more tickets for the Tidy and The Troops games so that we can raise more money for the Help For Heroes charity! This means that actually it will cost you 25p to enter this competition, not a bad price and all for a good cause!

St Patrick’s Day Celebrations at Tidy Bingo

Friday, Mar. 14th 2014 7:27 AM

Whether you are Irish or not, none of us can fail to miss the St Patrick day celebrations – the Irish certainly know how to throw a party that’s for sure. Of course the network and Tidy couldn’t let the day pass without going a little ‘green’ and we don’t mean eco-friendly. Across the network there are a number of promotions – a prize draw and bonus codes about covers it.

All the fun starts a little early with the chance to win one of ten Bailey’s Gift Sets across the network just for playing the instant win game, Irish Luck from today until St Patrick’s Day at 11:59pm.

A Little Radio [Blog] Silence

Monday, Mar. 10th 2014 7:50 AM

At 7.30am on Tuesday morning I will be donning a hospital gown at Harrogate hospital for a little keyhole surgery. Nothing major, just a routine gall bladder removal but a surgery that could put me out of action for a few weeks. I’m hoping that it will be just a week or two and then I’ll be back to regal you with stories from the Tidy Cupboard, tales of winners or just general gossip.

Talking of the Tidy Cupboard, CM Blondie will be your host for the next couple of weeks in the room – a host that you will know (and no doubt love) from the other rooms.

Tidy and The Troops Game – An Update

Wednesday, Mar. 5th 2014 2:08 PM

Last night saw only the second Tidy and the Troops guaranteed jackpot game take place (it should have been the third but a technical glitch meant the game didn’t run on Friday 28th). The first game played on 25th February and we sold an impressive 519 tickets, 319 over and above the 200 required to break even. This meant that £79.75 was added to the Troops kitty which can be checked here.

As we said, the 28th February’s game didn’t take place because of technical hitch but in order that the worthy cause didn’t miss out, David and I dipped our hands into our pockets and added £50 to the kitty anyway.
