We are pleased to anounce that Land Securities have chosen to support Mencap for the third year running.
Over the last two years the Westwood Cross managemement team have raised over £6000 for Mencap and we have pledged to raise another £3000 over the coming year.
The Lion's share of the money raised has been from the generous contributions of our shoppers through our wishing well and other fundraising events.
We would like to thank the community for their continued support and generous spirit.

We were delighted to announce Oasis domestic Abuse Service as Westwood Cross' local charity for 2016/2017.
Oasis was founded in 1994 to offer emergency, safe and temporary accommodation as well as ongoing support for families who have suffered domestic abuse across Kent.
Two women are murdered every week in the UK by their partner or ex-partner; Oasis works to keep victims safe and help them to rebuild their lives free from abuse.
The charity supports children and young people both in their refuge and in the wider Kent community, sharing the message that love shouldn’t hurt.
Oasis also has a charity shop, 'The Oasis Shop', in the heart of Margate's Old Town.
Oasis won the Westwood Cross Award of £1,500 at the Heart of the Community Awards. The donation will make a huge difference to the families in Kent that they support.
