Charities hold a special place in intu Victoria Centre's heart, and since 2016 we have partnered with two charities for our Charity of the Year, PASIC, and When You Wish Upon a Star. For our 2018 award, we have shortlisted two Nottinghamshire charities and now need your help to choose our next Charity of the Year.
Our Charity of the year benefits from receiving all donations from the Emmet Clock and opportunities to work with intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh in partnership to raise additional funds.
We recognise the incredible work of our shortlisted charities, and this year's runner up will receive a donation of £1000. This year's shortlisted charities are Danielle's Flutterbyes and Forever Stars. Find out more about each charity below and submit your vote for your chosen charity.
Danielle's Flutterbyes help young people aged 18-30 years suffering from kidney disease. Through donations and fundraising events they assist in funding recreational activities, days out, holidays and the purchasing of equipment to make life more bearable whilst receiving treatment. The charity also raise awareness of kidney disease and the impact it has on young lives.
Forever Stars is dedicated to fundraising for services in the East Midlands that support bereaved parents of stillborn babies.Forever Stars opened its first bereavement suite at the Queen's Medical Centre, named 'The Serenity Suite' in April 2016, which is regularly used by families that suffer this tragic loss. They are now working towards funding a bereavement suite at the City Hospital in Nottingham, so that both sides of the City would have a facility to support bereaved parents who have a stillborn baby.
