Abbey Centre welcomed NSPCC as our charity partner for 2019/20.
To kick start our NSPCC campaign we launched ‘One Million Pennies’ Wednesday 6th March 2019, placing two old school money spinners at our Food Court and facing Next internal entrance. The total amount of money raised from the spinners was £1,657.55!
We also partnered with NSPCC and our O2 store to host ‘Tech Fest’ Easter 2019 – an internet safety awareness day. Childhood Day in June saw us raise £474.82 for the charity.
The highlight of the year was without a doubt our BIG Screen Cinema event, in association with Movie House Cinemas, May 2019 raising £2,160! The MET Students Black Friday Collection raised £1,000 with Carols by Candlelight £500. World Book Day celebrations raised £30 for the children’s charity.
The total raised for NSPCC throughout 2019 was £4,922.37! Thank you and well done Abbey Centre shoppers!
Mark Stewart, Centre Manager said;
‘As a family friendly shopping centre, we pride ourselves on safeguarding everyone, especially vulnerable children. Thank you to everyone who has made this partnership successful this year. As a true mark of the relationship developed, we will continue to house the NSPCC money spinners on mall, indefinitely.’
Karen Kerr, NSPCC said;
‘Every penny helps us protect children. Huge thanks to Abbey Centre’s shoppers for spinning until they got dizzy and to the entire team who worked tirelessly to raise both funds and awareness of NSPCC NI.’
