A local shopper has been rewarded with a £50 Boots Voucher after winning the shopping centre’s #ShareTheLove Valentine’s competition.

48-year old Sarah Ormond was nominated to win the prize by her daughter, Paige Ormond, at the “Love Letter Post Box” situated in the centre on the lead up to Valentine’s Day.

Locals got fully involved in the competition and Castle Dene’s very own cupids made special guest appearances to encourage customers to vote for their deserving loved ones.

They also carried out “random acts of kindness”, buying a selection of hot and cold soft drinks for thirsty shoppers and spreading happiness throughout the centre.

Nominee, Paige Ormond said: “It was great to take part in the Valentine’s competition at Castle Dene Shopping Centre and I’m so thrilled my mother was selected as the winner.

“She has raised me, my brother with special needs and my sister for nearly 21 years and deserves so much more than what she gets. It’s amazing that she’s been recognised and rewarded for being such a great mum.”

Operations Manager at Castle Dene Shopping Centre, Sarah Bromwich, said: “We like to think that our centre is at the very heart of the community. Seeing so many people get involved in the competition has been fantastic and is a real testament to the good will and kindness of the people here.

“The team here are so happy for Sarah and we can’t wait to welcome her to the centre to hand over her well-deserved prize.”

Castle Dene Shopping Centre has an exciting array of events lined up for March, including World Book Day fun for all the family.

Children are being invited to come along to the centre dressed up as a character from their favourite book on Saturday 3rd March. Whether that’s Little Red Riding Hood or Horrid Henry, all kids are welcome for a day of educational fun.

The Creation Station will return on 10th March to help children make the perfect gift for mum and there will be an opportunity for kids to win their mum a fabulous spa prize.
