Shoppers visiting intu Eldon Square this Autumn can vote for three regional charities to receive a substantial donation, just in time for Christmas.

Collect an orange token from the customer service desk in St Andrew’s Way, near to Debenhams and vote for one of three chosen charities: Age UK, Smart Works Newcastle and Ouseburn Farm.

All three charities will receive a donation from the shopping centre with the highest vote receiving £500, followed by £200 for second and £100 for third place.

Handpicked by staff at the shopping centre, each charity supports the regions community in some way including mental health support, employment advice and environmental education.

Clare Cannon, Community Manager at intu Eldon Square, said: “Supporting the local community is very important to us; we’re encouraging shoppers to join in and vote for their chosen charity. The charity token box scheme will ultimately help our chosen charities increase their own brand awareness whilst receiving an additional donation from the shopping centre.

The box will be placed in the centre from Friday 27th September to Friday 29th November 2019.

Each customer will receive one token to vote and the order of votes will be announced on intu Eldon Square’s website on Friday 6th December.
