Families in need have benefitted hugely from intu Uxbridge’s two giving campaigns over the festive season.
Through its Christmas grotto, the centre fundraised an impressive Ł5,979 for Halo Children’s Foundation, intu Uxbridge’s charity of the year and long-term community partner. All the proceeds from the grotto were donated to the charity, which helps local children and their families after a bereavement and will help to make a positive impact on their lives.
Elsewhere, children who spent Christmas in hospital benefitted hugely from the kindness of intu Uxbridge shoppers who donated over 50 presents through the centre’s Give A Gift campaign. Staff from intu Uxbridge went to Hillingdon Hospital to deliver the donated gifts to poorly children who would be spending Christmas away from home.
Laurie Taylor, general manager of intu Uxbridge, said: “We are blown away by how many of our shoppers got involved in the gift-giving campaign, it was incredibly heart-warming to see. Thank you to each and every one of you – you really have helped to make a positive impact on the community.
“It’s fantastic to work with community partners such as Hillingdon Hospital to make a difference. And thank you also to every person who visited our grotto. We are very much enjoying working with Halo to make a positive impact, and we couldn’t do it without your support.”
