Victoria Shopping Centre aims to raise £25,000 for Saint Michael's Hospice
The Victoria Shopping Centre in Harrogate is aiming to raise £25,000 for local charity Saint Michael's Hospice and have given themselves until March 2018 to reach the target.
The ambitious target has been agreed to be a year long campaign, with plans in place to hold key charity fundraising events - both at the centre and around Harrogate - until March 2018 when the final sum will be revealed.
The shopping centre will be celebrating its 25th birthday this year and as local hospice care charity Saint Michael's marks its 30th anniversary, it proved the perfect time for Victoria Shopping Centre to give back to the local community that has supported them over the past two decades.
Chief Executive of Saint Michael's said: "We are delighted that the Victoria Shopping Centre have chosen us as a charity partner as they celebrate their 25th birthday. This comes as the hospice, too, marks a special milestone; for three decades Saint Michael's has offered personalised care and support to local families affected by terminal illness across the Harrogate district.
"£25,000 could help 50 people access a package of day therapy support, where our hospice team will listen to their goals and help them to do the things that are important to them - from creating special memories with family and friends, to staying in the familiar surroundings of their own home for as long as possible.
"We would like to thank Victoria Shopping Centre staff and shoppers for this fantastic support and wish the team every success with their fundraising."
James White, centre manager at the shopping centre said, "We're celebrating our 25th birthday this year and we wanted to give back to the community that have supported us during that period. Saint Michael's Hospice is a local charity that has probably helped a lot of our shoppers over the years.
"We've set an ambitious target and we will work hard throughout the year to reach it, and hopefully our shoppers will help us get there."
Saint Michael's Hospice offers free specialist care to people with a terminal illness and provides support to both patients and families
