Queensgate Shopping Centre, Peterborough, announce Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research as their charity of the year.

Peterborough’s Queensgate Shopping Centre has chosen to raise funds for blood cancer charity Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research through 2015 and 2016. 

The popular shopping centre decided to pick this national charity due to its relevance to local people in the area.

Sam Eastwood, Centre Director for Queensgate Shopping Centre, said:  “We are thrilled to announce Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research as the Queensgate Charity of the Year for 2015 – 2016.  We will be giving our full support to the many exciting events they have planned throughout the year, as well as raising awareness and vital funds.  I wish them well and myself and the team are looking forward to working with the charity over the next twelve months.”

We are delighted to be chosen as the charity of the year by Queensgate. It provides an excellent opportunity for us to engage with the local community, to talk more about our vital work and reach new people. We have lots of partnership events planned throughout the year including a sunflower exhibition and competition on 20th June, a bear hunt in the summer holidays and a 600km static bike ride, the equivalent of cycling from Peterborough to Paris. We hope that the people of Peterborough will enjoy the events and get involved further with our work.
