Staff at Glass Houghton’s Junction 32 shopping outlet have launched a fundraising and volunteer drive to help a trust for children and adults with profound and complex disabilities.
Staff at the shopping centre have pledged to support the Hollybank Trust, which runs the South Kirkby-based Sycamores home for adults with profound disabilities and communication needs.
The staff will be taking part in a number of fundraising ventures, including a fire walk, as well as spending time with residents at the home. The shopping outlet has already helped by transforming the home’s garden last year and individual stores – including 02, Pavers Shoes and Fitness Superstore – have also made donations.
The home is run by the Mirfield-based trust, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary.
Suzanne Dyda, corporate partnerships fundraiser at Hollybank, said: “This year is the 60th anniversary for Hollybank Trust, so that makes our partnership extra special to us.
“We are very excited to be developing this strong partnership with the shopping centre management and the retailers.”
Darren Winter, Junction 32 centre manager, said: “We are delighted to continue our relationship with Sycamores and Hollybank Trust, especially during their 60th.
“With the support of the retailers we are looking at innovative ways to help raise funds but also having some fun too whilst doing it.”
