Charities
We are proud to support the local and national charities that mean so much to our customers. From coins thrown into our fountain, to volunteer recruitment and cash collections, the Whitgift is an active partner and venue for the local charity community.
In 2011, we helped over 50 local and national charities raise in excess of £55,000 through activities within the Centre. Charity highlights of the year include the Whitgift Centre Christmas carol singing programme - collaborating local charities and schools to raise money for worthy causes - and a charity gift wrapping service for the Royal Marsden, as well as a national bone marrow recruitment drive for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust (ACLT) that recruited over 90 new donors.
Our staff and customers also support national campaigns including Sports Relief and Children In Need.
Both collection and awareness days are supported by the centre.
Due to the high level of demand the centre will only consider written requests from registered charities based in the Croydon Borough.
