St. Enoch Centre’s has played an active role in the community for the past 25 years and we are proud to support a range local community groups and charities which mean so much to our customers.
We aim to make contributions which will have a meaningful long term impact in the community and during the past year we have helped fund cultural programmes within Glasgow schools, supported many charities and community groups, as well as sponsoring community awards programmes including the Evening Times’ Scotswoman of the Year.
We also raise funds for the Beatson Cancer Charity through the generous donations we receive from our shoppers who use our free face painting every Sunday between 12-4pm.
