Rugby Central Shopping Centre Charity Appeal

Rugby Central Shopping Centre Charity Appeal

Rugby Central Shopping Centre is the social hub of the local community, being based in the heart of the town. Over 100,000 people visit Rugby Central each week, to meet friends and family, to eat and drink, to work, and to enjoy their leisure time. It offers great value and varied shopping options from a mix of approximately 50 retailers.


Rugby Central is launching an appeal to nominate their ‘Charity for 2019’ and is inviting local charities large and small to apply to work with them and enlist their support to raise awareness and funds for their chosen cause.


The management and tenants of Rugby Central are very active in supporting deserving charities. They have recently been working with their local branch of Guide Dogs for the Blind Association and surpassed the target of £5,000 so that they could sponsor a guide dog puppy. Tilly is a gorgeous golden retriever who is about to start her training. This was achieved by the management and retailers getting involved in cycling challenges, hosting in-centre fundraising events; and through donations from third party in-centre promotions.


To register an interest for this fantastic opportunity, charities should supply information on their aims and objectives, details on how working with Rugby Central Shopping Centre will benefit their cause, plus what they could offer to the shopping centre and its tenants/customers. Applications should be kept to a maximum of one side of A4 and be submitted to before 28th February. They will be shortlisted by the management team and the top three voted on by the Rugby Central Shopping Centre tenants. The winning charity will be notified by mid-March, ready for a start date of 1st April.


Of the appeal, Robin Swift, Centre Manager commented: ‘we are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to locally-based organisations, to provide a platform and location to reach our footfall, and the chance to build awareness for their charitable cause. I look forward to receiving some thought-provoking and deserving applications ahead of building a beneficial relationship with the successful charity.’
