Eastgate Shopping Centre is one of 60 shopping centres across the UK taking part in ‘One Great Day’ today.

One Great Day is a series of family and community charity events being held throughout the month of June to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, and other children’s health charities from across the country. Participating shopping centres provide a special family fun day that engages with the local community and raises money for a number of great causes.

One Great Day was established in 2014 and has so far raised £150,000 and has now grown to include 46 different children’s charities.

Eastgate Shopping Centre will be raising money for both the Pied Piper Appeal and Great Ormond St Hospital, both fantastic organisations, looking after the needs of sick children.

The activities at Eastgate will consist of face painting, a football skills game to win goodie bags, children’s activity area and a raffle to win a prize of Eastgate goods worth more than £250!

The fun starts at 11am and will run until 3pm. Keep your eyes open for a special visit from Glossy, the centres mascot.

Jason Robinson Centre Manager of Eastgate Shopping Centre, commented:“We are absolutely delighted to be a part of One Great Day. Hosting an event like this gives us the chance to give something back to support the wonderful work of The Pied Piper Appeal and the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

One Great Day is about community engagement and raising money for a number of great causes, but it is also a fantastic opportunity for families in the area to get together and enjoy a fun day out whilst spending quality time together.”
