Clarendon Square is one of 200 shopping centres across the UK taking part in ‘One Great Day’ on Saturday 15 June.
One Great Day is a series of family and community charity events being held throughout the month of June to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, and other local children’s health charities. Participating shopping centres provide a special event or family fun day for local communities across the UK, whilst raising money for a number of great causes.
From 10am until 1pm on Saturday, Clarendon Square will be hosting some fantastic family fun. There will be a ‘Ribbon of Rainbows’ display, where event-goers can choose a colourful band to write the name of someone who brightens up their life or to leave them a message.
Visitors will also be treated to some live singing from Stephen Barry from the centre’s Love Bling store, as well as the chance to receive free goodies and enter a tombola for a chance to win prizes donated by retailers and centre staff.
Clarendon Square will be raising money for Francis House Children’s Hospice, which provides high levels of clinical care to the families of children and young adults with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. The shopping centre will also be collecting donations for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
Sophie Stephenson, centre manager at Clarendon Square Shopping Centre, commented: “One Great Day is a fantastic event that allows our community to come together whilst helping children that really need support. Hosting an event like this is a really fun way to give something backto assist the wonderful work of Francis House Children’s Hospice and Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, which supports patients and families from across the UK.”
Michal Noe, Trustee of One Great Day, said: “We are thrilled to have Clarendon Square as one of 200 shopping centres taking part this year, helping so many ill children across the country. We are so grateful to CBRE, Lockton, Montague Evans and Savills, our official corporate partners, whose sponsorship means that every penny put in our collection buckets goes directly to these worthy charities.”
One Great Day was established in 2014 and has so far raised over £500,000 for 113 different children’s charities along with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. One Great Day now covers over 70 million square feet of retail space across the United Kingdom, from Folkestone to Aberdeen and nearly everywhere in-between!
