Teddy bears in Castle Quay Shopping Centre entertained shoppers dancing their way to raising £820.00 for local charity BYHP, which works with young homeless and other disadvantaged young people in Banbury. The teddy bear installation attracted shoppers to donate money to make them dance.
Paul Jackson, Commercial Director of Castle Quay said "We’re delighted that we decided to put a donation box with our dancing bears feature this year, which has raised over £820 for local charity BYHP from our generous shoppers, which helps young people who are homeless or disadvantaged. It means a lot to our company to be able to help great local causes".
"This money will go tremendously far in supporting our young people, we’re delighted that Castle Quay has decided to use this opportunity to support such a great local cause, helping young people who need it most" Anna Day, the charity’s CEO told us.
"Castle Quay Shopping Centre’s generous donation will make a significant contribution towards the organisation’s future this year as funding from other sources becomes harder to come by"” remarked Ron Barnett, the organisation’s Chair.
