CAMPERVAN COUNT UP
Our campervan will be rolling into the Centre for a week to entice shoppers into a big summer and holiday themed competition! The campervan will be brimming with balloons and shoppers will be invited to guess how many balloons are inside to be entered into the prize draw. The prize will be a night’s stay for 2 in a luxury hotel in Liverpool. Entry forms will be located in the main mall by the campervan and the full Terms & Conditions will be listed on the form.
Bella the Bee will be making appearances throughout the day for photo opportunities with visitors….PLUS selected stores will also be displaying their range of summer products in rotation throughout the week so that shoppers can pick up some great bargains whilst in the centre!
A children’s craft workshop will run alongside the campervan Count-up event on Saturday 30th July. Kids are invited to make a keyring for free to take home. The team at Jungle Fun & Area 51 will also be involved with a colouring competition and they are giving shoppers the chance to win tickets to a party at one of their venues. All the entries will be displayed on the Centre’s Facebook page in an online gallery and shoppers can vote for their favourite. The entry with the most votes will be awarded the prize.
SATURDAY 13TH AUGUST
To celebrate the Olympics in Brazil, a pair of exotic giant birds will take over the Centre. The brilliant birds will be roaming the mall between 10am – 4pm and shoppers will get a chance to catch a glimpse of the rare species! They will mix and mingle with visitors and pose for photographs. The animatronic puppets are colourful, fully animated and completely unique!
We invite all shoppers to take a selfie with the birds and then Tweet us @BelleValeSC or post a photo on our Facebook page and spread the cheer.
FUND RAISING TOMBOLA
On Saturday 18th June, the staff from Belle Vale Shopping Centre hosted a fun day in aid of Zoë’s Place, Liverpool. The fun, family activity was held on the mall including a tombola and face-painting. All proceeds from the event was donated to the Centre’s chosen charity, Zoë’s Place.
Belle Vale Shopping Centre hosted a special fun day to raise money and awareness for Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice. Shoppers were invited along on Saturday 18th June to enjoy a tombola, raffle and face-painting while raising money for a great cause. All of the items were donated and were either end-of-sale goods from retailers at the Centre or unwanted gifts including homeware, jewellery and children’s gifts.
The tombola and raffle proved to be very popular with most of the prizes being scooped up early on. Face painting was also available so that children could get a colourful make-over from a professional face painter. There was a small charge for the face painting and a percentage of proceeds was also donated to Zoë’s Place. The centre’s mascot Bella the Bee made appearances and posed for photographs throughout the day and this brought a smile to many faces.
Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice provides palliative, respite and end-of-life care to babies and infants aged from birth to five years old suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Zoë’s Place is Belle Vale Shopping Centre’s chosen charity and the centre has been supporting the charity for many years. Together they work on events and promotions to fundraise for the charity and the team hope to raise more money this year than ever before. The centre’s team raised £720 towards their goal.
