Luton Together Community Programme
Following the Government’s Covid-19 announcement, The Mall Luton launched a new local community support programme – Luton Together.
The community led programme has seen donations to local charities and Just Giving appeals including the centre’s Charity of The Year- Luton Foodbank, Luton Community Action Group, NOAH Enterprise Coronavirus appeal and Discover Islam’s Luton Together COVID-19 appeal. Money donated will help provide food and clothes to those in need.
The Mall has also supplied essentials such as hand sanitiser to key workers in Luton, as well as delivering appreciation packages to show thanks from The Mall for all their hard work during these difficult times. Materials were also supplied to help design teachers at Chiltern Academy create visors for the NHS,
Other organisations The Mall is working to support include Mary Seacole Housing Association, Age Concern and Luton Learning Link. The Mall has also been working with retailers from the shopping centre on their own initiatives, including Uniform Exchange / Level Trust with their project which saw over 1,600 Learn@Home 'Survival Kits' delivered to children and young people in financial poverty trying to learn during school closures.
The centre continues to host a donation point for Luton Foodbank, and urges those that can, to donate at this time, as the Foodbank is extremely busy facing a greater local need for food parcels than ever.
