Coinciding with the famous nationwide One Great Day fundraising activities, the Harpur Centre is hosting a unique event where visitors can be in with the chance of winning a brilliant prize, whilst supporting two fantastic causes. From Friday 28th June until Monday 1st July, a stunning ice sculpture will appear on the mall to celebrate One Great Day.
The Harpur Centre’s visitors will be invited to come down to the Centre to guess how long it will take for the ice to melt and reveal Harpur’s “heart”. Shoppers can pledge their guess using the entry forms which will be available on the mall from Friday 28th June 2019, the closest guess will be crowned winner.
PLUS, on Saturday 29th June, the Harpur Centre’s visitors will have the opportunity to transform themselves into a character of their choice at a face painting station in exchange for a small donation between 11am and 3pm. The Centre team will be bucket collecting on the mall for donations to go towards the commendable children’s charities, Great Ormond Street Hospital and St Francis’ Children’s Society.
Samantha Laycock, Centre Manager at the Harpur Centre, commented: “We are hugely excited to celebrate One Great Day with this unique and ‘cool’ event. The Centre team all have our predictions at the ready and we hope our visitors will place their guesses for how long the ice will melt too! Plus, on top of all of this, one lucky winner will win a fantastic prize donated by the generous retailers at the Centre.”
