Castlegate nominated for Purple Apple!

2nd May, 2019

CASTLEGATE SHOPPING Centre has been nominated for a prestigious industry award celebrating One Great Quiz.

Recognising excellence in shopping centre marketing, we have been shortlisted in the ‘Cause Related Marketing – One Great Day’ category at the esteemed REVO Purple Apple Marketing Awards.

Held June 2018, Castlegate’s One Great Quiz night brought together over 100 people from 15 businesses in Stockton and raised £2140 for One Great Day supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital and Middlesbrough & Teesside Philanthropic Foundation.

On a very small budget, the Castlegate team managed to secure a free venue, food, photography, filming and those all-important raffle prizes to be able to raise as much money as possible for One Great Day.

The ‘Cause Related Marketing – One Great Day’ category recognizes innovative fundraising events that showcase community leadership, effectively engage stakeholders and raise awareness for the charities.

Chantal Taylor, Marketing Manager at Castlegate, said: “The Purple Apples are the highest accolade you can wish to win in retail marketing. To be shortlisted against the UK’s leading shopping centres and receive national recognition is fantastic for Castlegate.

“The money raised and the relationships made far exceeded our expectations and the positive results of the evening allowed us to make important links with other local businesses” added Chantal

We find out at a glittering London awards ceremony next week if we’re lucky enough to bring home a Purple Apple – wish us luck!
