Staff at Teesside have pledged to deliver 25 good deeds for the local community as part of their year-long silver anniversary celebrations.
The centre has launched the initiative to thank shoppers for their continued support over the past 25 years.
The Teesside centre team has already completed good deeds such as raising money for the local Alzheimer’s charity by taking part in a Memory Walk, providing pre-employment training for 10 unemployed 16-24 year olds and delivering bedding and homewares to Bridge House Homeless Centre.
With plenty more good deeds planned for the rest of the anniversary year, Teesside is now calling on the local community to nominate a cause for them to support for their 25th, and final, good deed.
To nominate the 25th good deed, shoppers simply have to visit the Teesside Facebook Page and share their suggestion.
Mike Clarke, Centre Manager for Teesside, said: “We’re celebrating 25 years as part of the community and wanted to give something back to all the people who have supported us over the years.
“Whether it’s a charity that’s close to your heart, a wacky idea or simply a way to put a smile on our shoppers’ faces, we want everyone to let us know what they think our 25th good deed should be.”
The centre’s ongoing community programme has contributed £234,000 over the last five years through cash contributions, time volunteering, in kind donations and fundraising which has benefitted local people, charities and community groups.
