intu Braehead goes 'mall' out to support the community

It’s not just keeping our centres running that our frontline teams have been busy with during lockdown. They have also been hard at work supporting their local communities at a time when even the smallest act of kindness makes a big difference in bringing people together. Our team at intu Braehead have been going 'mall' out to support doctors and nurses on the frontline, charities and local communities during the coronavirus pandemic.

We always try to bring positive change in our local community through strong relationships with charities and community groups.

Lydia Brown
Community development manager

Our centre director, Peter Beagley, said: 'We’ve been at the heart of the community since lockdown began providing access to vital services, such as pharmacies and supermarkets. As many of these essential services can only be reached through the shopping centre, a number of our team have been working through lockdown to make sure everyone has been able to access the services they need and we support those retailers who need to stay open. Our team has also made sure intu Braehead has remained a clean and safe place for people who need to visit the essential stores.'

Additionally, Paul Lucas, the intu Braehead's operations manager, has been providing an emergency radio communications system to voluntary groups across the west of Scotland. These include the Salvation Army, Red Cross, Scottish Emergency Rider Volunteer Service and Glasgow the Caring City, which supports vulnerable people in times of need.
