The three-year partnership follows a vote by staff at Land Securities, which owns and operates White Rose. The centre hopes to raise a significant amount of money for the charity, which will be used to help some of the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK.
General Manager of White Rose Shopping Centre, Steven Foster, said:
“We’re thrilled that Barnardo’s has been voted as our charity partner, and we’re excited to work with an organisation that makes such an important difference to the lives of children across the UK.
“Our centre team has already been busy fundraising for the charity, including bake sales, raffles, and bucket collections. We’re looking forward to a successful partnership with Barnardo’s.”
Barnardo’s Chief Executive, Javed Khan, said:
“We are delighted to have been chosen to be Land Securities national charity partner. The money raised from this partnership will help some of the most vulnerable children in the country, including those who are leaving care, have been sexually exploited and who look after a disabled family member.
“At Barnardo’s we are determined to help every child who needs our help get the support they need so they can fulfil their potential and thrive.”
Last year Barnardo’s supported 248,000 children and young people through more than 996 services across the UK.
