The Mall Cares for the JRF
The Jason Roberts Foundation are pleased to announce that The Mall at Uxbridge has provided the charity with a retail space in the Mall, as a community base from which fund raising educational programmes and events can be organised and delivered.
The Foundation was selected as The Mall at Uxbridge’s charity of choice in 2010/11 for their “Mall Cares” social responsibility programme.
The Foundation has already teamed up with Herbalife and Wallace Cameron, an organisation experienced in first aid training, to plan and deliver an exciting programme of health enhancing fundraising activities and events.
The Jason Roberts Foundation was established to educate and develop socially disadvantaged children through participation in sport and sports education. The Foundation already runs a number of successful programmes for able and disabled bodied boys and girls in some of the most deprived areas in London. Continued delivery of these programmes and expansion to other deserving target areas depends on sponsorship and fundraising by the Foundation, and the retail space in the Mall will provide an ideal outlet for fund raising activities to be delivered from.
Otis Roberts, CEO of the Foundation said, “Since the Liverpool Legends Charity Match we held at Hayes last year, when The Mall at Uxbridge supported the Foundation by promoting the game and selling tickets, the Foundation has developed a close relationship with the Management and staff of The Mall.” He added, “We were therefore delighted to have been chosen as their charity of choice in 2010/11 and to have been provided with this retail space.
We now need to convert the space into an attractive training, office and retail unit so that we can run these programmes and generate a health stream of funding for the Foundation.”
Andrew Davy, Manager of The Mall, Uxbridge commented, “We are delighted to be working with the Jason Roberts Foundation. They will bring much needed energy to this area of The Mall Uxbridge. As a community and value shopping centre the Foundations aims and objectives fit very closely with our own.”
