Charities & Fundraising

Idlewells Shopping Centre is 100% committed to supporting Sutton-in-Ashfield – its town centre and the people who live and work here.

We will always support local charities and events wherever possible, the best way we can do this is to help give them exposure using our profile in the community.

If you are looking to raise money or support, and you are a registered charity, please get in touch with us.

One Great Day – annual fundraiser

Each summer, we are committed to supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital, via our One Great Day fundraiser.  One Great Day is a UK-wide shopping centres’ initiative from which Great Ormond Street – and one local charity – benefit.

Year-round fundraising

We are blessed to have a member of our local community as a year-round fundraiser for One Great Day, his name is Alan Hupton.

Alan has been a prolific fundraiser for an assortment of charities over most of his lifetime. In 2018 he pledged to dedicate his fundraising time entirely to our One Great Day efforts – for which we, and the team at Great Ormond Street are hugely grateful.

Idlewells’ regular fundraiser, Alan enjoyed a trip to visit Great Ormond Street Hospital with Centre Manager, Chloe (pictured above) – hosted by the One Great Day fundraising team.
