Morgan Quarter is one of 140 shopping centres across the UK taking part in ‘One Great Day’ on 23 June. 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 Charity, and other locally based children’s health charities. Participating shopping centres will provide a special event or family fun day for local communities across the UK, whilst raising money for a number of great causes.
One Great Day was established in 2014 and has so far raised over £400,000 for 93 different children’s charities along with Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity. One Great Day now covers over 50 million square feet of retail space across the United Kingdom, from Folkestone to Aberdeen and nearly everywhere in-between!
Morgan Quarter will be raising money for LATCH – a charity that supports the children (and their families) who are receiving treatment for cancer at the Children’s Hospital for Wales as well as Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
Fun-raising on Saturday 23 June at Morgan Quarter will consist of a Spinathon between the businesses based in the Creative Quarter and a raffle with some great prizes donated by our stores! In addition, we are happy to be hosting the Cardiff Mini Film Festival. There will be screenings in the old B&O unit as well as the old Moss Bros unit. The team will be supporting One Great Day with collection buckets at the onsite screenings on the 23rd. For more information about the Cardiff Mini Film Festival, please click here.
“One Great Day is a highlight in our calendar, and it’s a great start to the summer. Hosting an event like this is a really fun way to give something back to support the wonderful work of LATCH and Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity which supports patients and families from across the UK.”
