Livingston shoppers raise £1,000 for children’s respite centre

Shoppers at The Centre, Livingston raised £1k at the weekend for a local respite centre which helps children with complex disabilities.

The funds were raised for Sunndach and Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity at its second One Great Day charity event.

Circus acts including contact jugglers, stilt walkers, hula hoopers and acrobats performed for shoppers throughout the day at the event, bringing a huge smile to many faces, and a live gold statue took shoppers of all ages by surprise as she moved to the sound of coins being donated.

Kids took part in arts and crafts with glitter tattoos and painted faces, whilst enjoying candy floss – all for donations which helped reach the final sum of £1k.

Debbi Dunlop, Deputy Charge Nurse at Sunndach in Livingston, said: “We are hugely grateful to The Centre, Livingston for raising money for us at the weekend.

“The management team have continued to support us in many ways, including completely transforming our garden, making a lot of our children very happy, which we are immensely grateful for.”

Ashley Bisland, Deputy Centre Director, said: “We are delighted with the funds raised by our shoppers at our One Great Day event at the weekend and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along on the day to take part and raise money at the same time for local children’s respite centre, Sunndach and Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.”
