Grosvenor Northampton is one of 200 centres across the UK taking part in ‘One Great Day’ on Thursday 20 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 Charity, and other locally based children’s health charities.
Participating shopping centres will provide a special event or family fun day for local communities across the UK, whilst raising money for a number of great causes.
As well as Great Ormond Street Hospital, Grosvenor Northampton will also be fundraising for KidsAid, a local based charity providing therapeutic support for children and young people who have suffered any form of trauma.
On Thursday 20 June, the centre management team will travel to Wales to climb Mount Snowdown… and a Just Giving page has been set up as they look to raise as much money as possible for two great causes.
Two days of fundraising on Friday and Saturday – 14 and 15 June – will be held at Grosvenor Northampton prior to the event too.
James Roberts, centre manager of Grosvenor Northampton, said: “One Great Day is a fantastic event that allows our community to come together whilst helping children that really need support. As a centre management team, we’re excited to be taking on such a great challenge and proud to be raising money to give something back to support the wonderful work of KidsAid and Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity which supports patients and families from across the UK.”
“One Great Day is an event that has fantastic energy and brings our community together while raising money for charity. We’re just looking to raise as much money as possible leading into the event and in the days after our big climb too.”
Michal Noe, Trustee of One Great Day, said: “We are thrilled to have Grosvenor Shopping Northampton as one of 200 shopping centres taking part this year, helping so many children’s health charities across the country.”
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 Charity. One Great Day now covers over 70 million square feet of retail space across
