Five Valleys team collaborates with Stroud Valleys Project

17 January 2020

The festive grotto at Stroud’s Five Valley’s shopping centre has raised more than £300 for a local charity.

The popular yurt grotto was open to young shoppers in the run up to Christmas over two weekends and the Five Valleys team pledged to donate 50% of the proceeds to the Stroud Valleys Project.  A total of £328.59 was raised which has now been handed over to the charity.

The charity focuses on protecting and enhancing the local environment and aims to help make the Stroud and its surrounding area a healthier and better place to live for both present and future generations. 

The charity which was founded in 1988 started out with the aim to help protect the industrial heritage of Stroud and its five valleys. Since then their office and eco shop has been awarded Gold in the Green Impact Awards. The money donated through the grotto will be used to plant trees. 

The Five Valleys Centre Manager Dionne Moore said: “We are delighted with how much money was raised with Santa’s grotto during December. We’re really pleased to be able to make a donation from the proceeds to the Stroud Valleys Project and look forward to working with them on future projects.”
