One Great Day at High Chelmer this weekend
High Chelmer 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 GreatOrmond 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.
High Chelmer will be raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity through a variety of family fun activities. Visitors will be able to get stuck into face painting, balloon modelling, arts and crafts for the little ones as well as the chance to win a £50 voucher from a store of the lucky winner’s choice!
Mick McDonagh, centre manager of High Chelmer, 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 back to assist the wonderful work of 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 High Chelmer 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!
