Lewisham Shopping Centre has been supporting Demelza Hospice Care for Children for 10 years!
What we’ve achieved
Along with the Lewisham community, we’re proud supporters of Demelza Hospice Care for Children, a charity that provides specialist care and emotional support for children with terminal conditions and their loved ones across the area.
We’re overjoyed to say that we’ve now been supporting the charity for 10 whole years!
Over this time, we’ve managed to raise over £77,692 through hosting Demelza's activities in our centre and in the local area – there's been a wishing well in Central Square, bag packing at Sainbury’s, Christmas concerts, and fun sponsored activities like walks, runs, sky dives, bed pushes and tombolas.
We even welcomed some very special guests to the centre to help us raise funds – namely Peppa Pig, the Minions, Bob the Builder and more!
What's planned for 2018?
This year, we planning so many more fundraisers for Demelza both in-centre and within the community. This is what's coming up:
Sunday, 15th July: Bubble Rush, Avery Hill Park
Raise money while running through walls of bubbles! If you’re looking for a run that’s packed with fun, then this is one for you. Check the Demelza Facebook page for more details.
Saturday 4th August: Bed Pull
This fantastic event sees a team literally pulling a hospital bed all the way down Eltham High Street! Also, look out for the return of the very special guests, Peppa Pig and the Minions, who will be getting involved along the way.
