The Popular Willen Hospice Vortex is back at intu Milton Keynes.
The Willen Hospice Vortex, the popular and well known coin-spinning machine that raises money for Willen Hospice, has made a welcome return.
Willen Hospice needs to raise around £7 every single minute of the year to provide specialist end of life care and the vortex is a fun way for the public to help support this.
Shelley Peppard, general manager at intu Milton Keynes, says: “We are delighted to have the vortex back here at intu Milton Keynes; it always has families huddled around it as kids just love to watch their pennies spiral down.

You can visit the Willen Hospice vortex at intu Milton Keynes on South Concourse, near the frog clock.
