Our First Good Deed

DATE PUBLISHED: 29/03/2019

arc shopping centre are delighted to announce the recipient of their first 'Good Deed', St Nicholas Hospice Care.

St Nicholas Hospice Care have been needing a lifting device for the hospice to enable them to lift people up from the floor in a safe and dignified manner, and arc shopping centre are very happy to be able to purchase this essential equipment for use both at the hospice and in the community.

This is the first of the 10 good deeds that the shopping centre are carrying out over the next 10 months. As arc is celebrating 10 years of being open in the heart of Bury St Edmunds, they thought carrying out 10 good deeds that give back to the local community would be a great way of thanking everyone for their valued support. After all the centre wouldn’t be the same without the support of the community.

Abbie Panks, arc centre manager said "The hospice team work so hard in our community and I am thrilled that we have been able to support them with the first of our '10 Good Deeds'. The equipment we are providing will be used for years to come and help many people"

Angela Jiggins, Hospice Physiotherapist, said “I am delighted that the Hospice has been chosen as this months ‘10 Good Deeds’ winner. The Mangar Elk, a lifting device being provided by arc shopping centre, will be a great asset to the organisation, as the lift is easily transportable and can be used in confined spaces, allowing us to use it within our ward and day therapy sessions, as well as out in the community"

arc shopping centre will be carrying out nine more good deeds throughout 2019. Members of the public wishing to make a nomination should head to the arc shopping centre website and complete the short nomination form.

10 Good Deeds is the second of arc shopping centres 10th birthday activities taking place, with lots more to come throughout the year including Party in the P’arc scheduled for the Summer.
