STAFF AT Broughton Shopping Park have launched a donation point for warm clothing and food to help support the community.

The centre is calling on visitors to donate warm coats, gloves and scarves which they no longer want or need, alongside non-perishable or tinned food items, helping to ensure local families don’t go cold or hungry.

A collection box has been installed in the foyer outside Costa Coffee at Broughton for customers to drop off donations.

The items will be distributed to local charities, including West Cheshire Foodbank, Chester City Mission and Blacon Children’s Centre, all of which support the most vulnerable people in the area.

Alan Pruden-Barker, centre manager at Broughton, said: “Our local community is at the heart of everything we do here at Broughton, and we’re proud to launch this appeal and continue to help those who need it most."


He added: "These months are often some of the most challenging of the year, so we hope this appeal will act as a vital lifeline to many families and vulnerable people.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the continued support from our customers, and I have no doubt they will rally around, as they always do.”

Broughton has partnered with Chester’s Dee Radio to launch the appeal following the success of their joint partnership at Christmas.

That saw hundreds of toys dropped off at the centre to ensure that as many local children as possible could wake up to a gift on Christmas morning.
