Popular York Shopping Centre teams up with own retailers and eateries to help local families
A popular Shopping Centre in York has teamed up with its own retailers, eateries and a local motor group to help raise money for local families in need to see a pantomime and spread Christmas cheer.
Vangarde Shopping Park has launched a staff giveaway in collaboration with Stoneacre in order to raise money for this cause, with a variety of prizes on offer.
All proceeds from the giveaway have been donated to York Theatre Royal, with dozens of staff coming forward to contribute.
Deb O’Donnell, Centre manager at Vangarde Shopping Park, said: “Not only is this a fantastic initiative to reward the people who make Vangarde Shopping Park as great as it is, but it’s also an opportunity to do some good in the local community and really make a difference for families at a time of high spending.
“The response from our store teams and the centre management team has been fantastic – our close-knit community really rally together to contribute towards the York community and help out where they can.
“We work closely with other businesses to aim to benefit the local community and this is another cause that we are delighted to be involved in.”
