Chelmsford shoppers show their charitable side at High Chelmer
Chelmsford shoppers have been demonstrating just how generous and kind-hearted they are, after four charities have benefited to the tune of more than £2,900.
Epilepsy Action, Marie Curie, Cancer Research and The Children’s Society have all visited High Chelmer Shopping Centre in recent months and during that time, visitors have been digging deep to donate a staggering £2,921.
High Chelmer Centre Manager, Mick McDonagh, said he was delighted with how much had been raised for the four worthy charities. “We regularly host a number of charitable organisations and good causes for a range of different activity including engagement and all-important fundraising in the centre,” said Mick.
“I’m thrilled that through this, the charities have been able to raise so much. We know and understand the role that High Chelmer plays in the city and the wider community. A key part of that is being able to support those that need it the most.
“We have a fantastic response whenever charities visit the centre – whether that is to engage with shoppers or raise money – and that’s been proven with the total raised. We have a number of different organisations lined up to visit the centre in the coming months. Last year we accommodated over 120 charities and community groups in various ways.”
