Let's shine a light on Merton business Centre Court Shopping Centre, who were able to adapt and respond to the need of the local community during the pandemic.
Not only did they lift up the community by sharing positive vibes on social media with their #pocketsofpositivity campaign, but they went above and beyond to supply food to those in need.
They delivered medication and prescriptions (with the help of a local chemist) and they also donated £15 Tesco vouchers to an incredible 250 students at Ricards Lodge High School.
Although most of the shops in Centre Court were forced to close, they gave back to their community by diversifying their offer and introducing services relevant to the pandemic.
