It really was One Great Day, well maybe three!

16 July 2018

The Alhambra Shopping Centre recently hosted 'One Great Day' of fundraising fun for all the family to enjoy. 

The One Great Day fundraising spectacular followed similar successful events that have taken place over the last four years, that have raised more than £15,000 for charity. 

This year’s funds have almost reached a staggering £8,000 which is to be split between One Great Day’s charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the centre’s chosen local charity of the year - Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The money was raised through a combination of a golfing day, Family Fun event in the shopping centre and some of the Alhambra staff taking in the It’s a Knock Out challenge on Saturday 30th June.

The Alhambra organised a ‘One Great Golf Day’ that took place on the 7th June at Sand Hill Golf Course and raised almost £6,000 towards the One Great Day charitable efforts. Thank you to all that took part and to our many sponsors for the day.

The family fun event with Bluebell Wood on Saturday 23rd June included lots of games for the kids including the fish bowl challenge, photos with superheroes and live music by local, up and coming singers Katie Greaves, Nathan Kennedy and Thomas Bee!

Bluebell Wood spokesperson said: “We’re delighted to be the chosen charity of the Alhambra Centre for 2018. The fun day was a great opportunity for us to raise much needed funds and spread awareness about the hospice.”

Steph Higham, Alhambra Shopping Centre marketing manager said: "This year’s One Great Day events were amazing – the best to date and so much fun! Thank you to everyone who got involved one way or another, so we could offer such a great donation to two more than worthy causes. 

“I for one really enjoyed the It’s a Knock Out challenge on Saturday at Dinnington Rugby Club, it was such great fun raising money for kids in the sun!

“Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice have been amazing support during our One Great Day events. We have lot’s more planned with Bluebell Wood throughout this year so keep an eye out in the Centre for up and coming events as well as on our social Media and website."
