Bluewater Celebrates Birthday With Good Deeds
Celebrating 20 years since opening, Bluewater has pledged to support 20 Good Deeds, investing both time and money in community initiatives throughout 2019 and in the years ahead.
From its opening on 16th March 1999, Europe’s leading retail and leisure destination has become a key landmark in the county’s landscape, providing visitors with an unparalleled experience.
Over 20 years, the local community has played a vital role at Bluewater and supporting community development and local businesses in return, has been just as important to Bluewater. Some of the good causes to benefit will include Bexley Deaf Centre, offering lip reading services to help people with hearing loss and The Hygiene Bank, providing essential toiletries to support those vulnerable and struggling within the local area.
All 20 projects will receive a mix of funds and staff time, by way of thanks to the communities that have supported Bluewater for the past 20 years.
Since opening, Bluewater has welcomed millions of guests from across Kent, the UK and the world, and in doing so contributes £391 million to the UK economy every year.
