Swinton Square Partnership

Swinton Square has officially named Kidscan as its inaugural charity partner of the year for 2021.

Swinton Square will join us to begin what is the first charity partnership for the shopping centre. Together we will raise vital funds for Kidscan throughout the year; including planned sponsorship activities, fun events and entertainment for all. We will also be able to use the centre for promotional purposes and to help increase our profile in the community.

We want to be able to engage with local people and businesses to raise awareness of our charity and share information of the vital research we fund and manage. Many people aren’t aware of the side effects that many children suffer from, after receiving chemotherapy and we want to ensure that every child who suffers from cancer will not only survive but also thrive.”

Swinton Square has been around for over 45 years and has always been the focal point for shopping in the local community. The Centre offers a good mix of strong, well loved independents and familiar brand names like Boots, Max Spielmann and Greggs plus an anchor supermarket. The centre is well located for Swinton train station and main routes into Salford and Manchester.

Chris Doidge, Swinton Square, Centre Manager commented: “I am really excited to see this project come to life and to support such a good, local cause. It’s a great opportunity for us to focus on raising significant funds to help poorly children throughout the region and beyond. I am sure that we will have a really successful year, I know that everyone at the centre and our visitors will back the partnership and make Kidscan feel welcome.”
