Local charities benefit from Barnsley Shopping Centre

23 January 2017

Alhambra Shopping Centre has recently handed over thousands of pounds to worthy causes following a record year of fundraising.

Last month,we welcomed more than 1600 children to the popular Santa’s Grotto and 4D sleigh ride experience generating over £5,000 with all proceeds going direct to Barnsley Hospice.

In October / November we also helped raised over £18,000 for the Royal British Legion by hosting a poppy appeal stand within the Centre and a further £5,000 for Barnsley’s Tiny Hearts Appeal and Great Ormond Street Hospital following the success of the annual One Great Day fundraising events in June.

Alhambra’s marketing manager, Steph Higham said: "As a community Shopping Centre it is a high priority for us to support local charities, combined we have raised over £28,000 in 2016. We hope that our donations will help continue the fantastic work that our charities do in the local community. A special thank you goes out to all the volunteers representing the charities that we worked with this year, we couldn’t raise such fantastic amounts without them.”

"We are choosing to continue our support to Barnsley Hospice this year and hope to raise lots more for charity through our planned fundraising initiatives as 2017 develops."
