Shoppers can do their bit to boost a charity’s coffers while having the opportunity to win prizes.

Middleton Grange Shopping Centre in Hartlepool is hosting a dedicated Macmillan Day tomorrow to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Care.

Centre staff have organised a fun-packed day which will feature prize giveaways via a charity tombola and raffle.

The charity tombola will see more than 50 prizes up for grabs, including cuddly toys, baby bundles, perfumes, photo frames, jewellery and handbags.

For a donation of £1, shoppers can also enter the Middleton Grange raffle to be in with a chance of winning a host of prizes including a paddle board session for six, donated by Hartlepool Marina.

Various retailers at the centre have donated prizes, including a Yankee Candle from Bright and Beautiful, an oil burner set from Soap & soul, a £10 gift voucher from CEX, a wine glass from Simply Charming, a wallet from Geek Cave and a purse from Bags Galore.

Mark Rycraft, centre manager at Middleton Grange, said: “Macmillan Cancer Care is a wonderful charity providing care and services to those in need and is close to the hearts of all the team here at Middleton Grange.  

“We’d like to thank our retailers for their kind donations.”

“We hope shoppers come along and show their support. There are some brilliant prizes up for grabs and lots to be won!”

A cake sale will also be held to raise funds for the cancer care charity.
