Our Charity Partners

Hope Nottingham 

We've raised over £24,000.00 throughout our unique events such as our summer event Victoria Springs: Pool Party and previous events such as the Glow Room and Victoria Beach. As well as this the Emett Clock helps provide the charity with a constant stream of support during the year, thanks to our shoppers' kind penny wish donations we have raised £4,597.

We partnered with Hope Nottingham last year which is a local charity that supports 14 Foodbanks across the city. They aim to help people out of crisis and direct people to life-changing support. The money raised will go towards its food bank provisions, from food distribution, collection, and transport, to its satellite foodbanks and operational costs for supporting a volunteer team of approximately 250 volunteers across the city.

What we are doing...

International E-Waste Day

In 2022, we hosted a free E-waste collection point on the lower mall and gave customers the opportunity to recycle their electrical waste. Over a third of UK households hold onto at least one redundant small electrical appliance that has the potential to be recycled. That’s a staggering 418,107 small appliances

Big City Clean

We continue to support the ‘Big City Clean’ programme as part of our ESG strategy, with the Purple Bag scheme to help litter pick the public domain, with a focus on the external areas close to the centre. This is achieved by donating time to support a cleaner city and improve the customer journey into Nottingham, alongside “it’s in Nottingham” and linked to our "Heart of the City" campaign for 2023.

EV Chargers

The 44 EV chargers, which include 32 x 7kw BP Pulse chargers and 12 x Tesla Superchargers, are an innovative addition to our economic development efforts, as well as a supporter of our commitment to sustainability. This also means that we are already meeting future demand and there is still available capacity to introduce more should the need arise.

Volunteering

Upcoming volunteering at the Big City Farm CR Day booked for the 12th of September. Supporting the local community with the up keep of the farm and build city relationships with lower economy demographic.

Last summer we volunteered at Eastwood Academy in which we created a wildlife pond and vegetable patch with a local school. We continue to work with the school to monitor the progress of this area and benefit of the students. Supplied more seeds to grow produce for next year.

Our Community

Here are Victoria Centre we are here to support our team, SWAN (Successful women always network) and Boys Cry 2 groups open networking and support groups created in 2023.

We have now had success stories for both groups changing the lives of our teams, which gives us a plat-form to help our teams' personal needs and improve overall health. Team needs like essentials and hygiene products are still available and are proving a great benefit to our team, following the increase in the cost of living. We felt this has supported a reduction in sickness, improving overall health and engagement.

We are always continuing to improve our sustainability and impact on the community outside and within our centre.
