GREEN Oaks Shopping Centre in Widnes has been working with Halton Haven Hospice to support the charity in raising vital funds.

Kind-hearted and generous shoppers donated more than £500 throughout the year at the various events held at the shopping centre.

Families enjoyed activities such as face painting, superhero workshops, a Halloween themed photo booth and a ride on Santa’s sleigh.

The money raised will be given to fund the charity’s work caring for people with life limiting conditions.

Faye O’Neill, fundraiser of Halton Haven Hospice said: "We are incredibly grateful to all the staff and customers of Green Oaks Shopping Centre who have raised a wonderful amount of money for Halton Haven Hospice since kicking off regular fundraising events back in June.

"Community support like this is absolutely vital to us and it’s wonderful to see all the amazing events at Green Oaks that shoppers and visitors have been able to enjoy over the past months, all whilst supporting the hospice."
