Each year Prince Bishops Shopping Centre, with the help of the public, selects a local charity to work with for twelve months. Through events and other initiatives the aim is to raise the profile of the selected charity; one of the requirements is that the charity won't already receive a lot of support or funding.
Throughout 2016 Prince Bishops Shopping Centre are extremely proud to be supporting If U Care Share Foundation, a suicide prevention charity based in Great Lumley, County Durham.
Prince Bishops management and security team have organised a number of events in order to raise awareness and funds for the charity including a sponsored abseil, a fun day, a row-a-thon and a bike-a-thon. Additionally the charity were given free advertising space in the shopping centre magazine, Pulse as well as on site advertising to raise awareness.
A new charity will be selected in March 2017, please keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details.
