100-mile charity cycle.
In line with JLL’s Charity Day, Castlepoints Centre Manager, David Pickett was one of the three members of JLL staff who cycled a 100-mile route from Bournemouth to Churchill Square in Brighton. This took place on 9th September 2021 in aid of One Great Day Charity and a total of £1,500 was raised.
Over the last few years, Castlepoint Shopping Park has partnered with One Great Day achieving many fun and rewarding events whilst raising impressive funds for a worthy cause. One of the impacts of Covid-19 resulted in a pause to much of our charitable activity last year, but Castlepoint is keen to continue to support this charity in 2021.
‘We’re delighted to have taken part in the Charity cycle for One Great Day and to raise money for such a fundamental and worthy charity.’ Says David Picket Centre Manager at Castlepoint.
Chris, one of our security guards is part of the iconic Bournemouth Spiderman charity marching band.
The Bandsmen, made up of a range of ages from 16 attend and performs at Carnivals, Fetes, and Shows throughout England. The band is unique for it's colourful costumes and a unique blend of music and crazy comedy antics.
The Band's main aims are to assist and help the fund raising of worthy causes, especially those concerned with children having special need or physical handicaps. Also to generally assist other charitable organisations, and support and encourage youth bands in their efforts to promote musical knowledge and expertise.
As the band is a registered charity, the bandsmen receive no payment for their time or efforts, but gain only the pleasure from seeing others enjoy the shows.
