Supporting our community

From illuminating our centre in blue to thank NHS and key workers to donating to local causes, here's how we're supporting our community...

During these challenging times we remain passionate about supporting our local community. From illuminating our centre in blue for #ClapForOurCarers and donating to local causes to staff helping create protective visors for frontline workers here's what's happening...

Saying thank you to our NHS and key workers

Every Thursday at 8pm we join the community in thanking our NHS and key workers by illuminating the centre in blue as we all #ClapForOurCarers.

Donating to local causes

  • Donation of 37,500 chocolates to local British Red Cross, used in care packages for isolated people/ vulnerable families
  • Donation of 25,000 chocolates to the NHS for staff at Manchester hospitals
  • Donation of food to FareShare

A showcase of rainbows

We loved seeing all the rainbow pics springing up across the community, so we asked our Facebook community to show us what they've created and here are a couple of our favourites out of all that we received, to spread some more happiness. For more pictures, visit our Facebook page!

Our staff independantly helping their community

Making protective visors

A team of staff from Salford Royal have helped to design and make thousands of protective visors for colleagues working on the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our very own Customer Service Team Leader, Dave, has joined local volunteers and staff from across the organisation making the visors and those working on the frontline are already benefiting from the equipment with thousands more ready to be distributed to clinical areas in the coming weeks. He’s now also making labels to go on bags for patients’ belongings.

Cheering up the residents of a local care home

Nicola from the Customer Services team has joined with her family and neighbours making cards for the residents of her local dementia care home. There are 45 residents in the home and they are making sure they will each get a card to say hello and best wishes during their isolation.

Essential stores remain open

intu Trafford Centre sits at the heart of its community and provides access to vital services. As many of these essential services can only be reached through the centre, we will ensure all our visitors are able to access the services they need whilst supporting those retailers who need to stay open.
