Neighbourhood Bingo is here!

Would you like to get to know your neighbours, but don’t know how? Neighbourhood Bingo is your chance!

Have you ever wondered who lives next door? Now you have a perfect reason to go and meet your neighbours. Besides new friends, you might also win a gift card to Wolt. Screenshot the bingo card and add your neighbours’ names to it – when your card is full, you can participate in the ruffle.

How to participate:

  • Take a screenshot of the bingo card below or from @hoas_fi Instagram stories.
  • Go knock on your neighbours’ doors, introduce yourself and ask them for their first names or nicknames on your bingo card.
  • Send your bingo card to us via Instagram DM no later than 25.10.

Tip: If you don’t have next-door neighbours or if no one is home, collect the names of your upstairs or downstairs neighbours. Just make sure your bingo card includes two neighbours!

Five 20 € giftcards to Wolt will be drawn among all participants.

Happy bingo and good luck getting to know your neighbours!
