Rank and its brands have a long history of community involvement and charitable fund-raising.

Our venues are often cited as ‘community hubs’ – particularly our Mecca bingo venues. We challenge all of our teams to consider what they can contribute to the communities that they serve.

This takes the form of charitable fund-raising for local and national causes, the use of our venues for community events and participation in local business and community organisations, amongst other activities.

Rank Cares

Rank is proud to be working in partnership with Carers Trust, the UK’s largest charity for carers. Carers Trust works to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid for a family member or friend. With 147 Network Partners including care schemes and carers centres they aim to ensure that information, advice and practical support are available to all carers across the UK.

With nearly 11,000 employees working in Rank’s 87 Mecca bingo clubs, 56 Grosvenor casinos as well as in its support centres, the company will be supporting Carers Trust with volunteering as well as fund-raising.

This partnership will enable us to deliver small grants to carers registered at Carers Trust's Network Partners:

  • Carers Essentials Fund – carers can apply for grants towards the cost of vital equipment such as washing machines, cookers, fridge freezers or even a bed so that they can get a decent night's sleep
  • Carers Take Time Out Fund – will give carers time out from their caring role to relax, do something for themselves and recharge their batteries
  • Carers Skills Fund – will enable carers to learn new skills that will assist them in their caring role or help them to return to work

In addition, Rank Cares provides a framework for team members to volunteer their time to help the Carers Trust, often utilising hidden talents to bring relief and happiness to these selfless carers.
