The Gift of Giving Back

In 2021, our festive celebrations were all about giving back to some of the amazing people and charities that do such wonderful work in our community.

As part of this we installed a giant giving box in the centre to raise money for four local charities.

We know that charities across our communities continue to need our support more than ever, so our giving boxes are here to stay with a brand new look!

Located at our Cornwall Street entrance, visitors can use contactless payment to easily donate £3 to Andy’s Man Club, Macmillan, Plymouth Domestic Abuse Services, and Woodside Animal Welfare Trust.

Thank you for helping us to continue to support these amazing organisations. Find out more about their work below.
