Voting for intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh’s ‘Charity of The Year’ has opened to the public for its fourth year.
This year’s nominees feature a range of different local and national causes including, Framework, Rainbows Hospice and Cancer Research UK. The chosen winner, announced on 8 February, will benefit from penny-wishes dropped into the centre’s famous Emett Clock’s pond, as well as any other fundraising money across the two intu centres from the year.
Hoping to build on recent fundraising success, which saw the centre raise almost £7,000 over the festive period for a range of causes, Nigel Wheatley, general manager of intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh, said:
“Each year, we make a commitment to support local charities and help those across the region who are doing great work for those in need - we think it’s only right that the final choice for Charity of the Year is in the hands of our shoppers.
“The Emett Clock has become such an iconic part of the centre and Nottingham and we know it puts a smile on lots of people’s faces. A big thank you to each and every person that has taken the time to drop a penny-wish into the Emett Clock pond over the years. We hope they continue to do this so we can raise even more for charity.”
