This great event is returning to Blackpool on Saturday 17th June!
Children's charity One Great Day is an event that supports not only Great Ormond Street Hospital but Blackpool's own local charity Aspired Futures.
Last June a number of businesses throughout Blackpool supported Houndshill Shopping Centre in a fabulous day of fun and fundraising with entertainment from Cbeebies stars and Houndshill tenants in the white rabbit races, children in fancy dress and craft activities to make Mad Hatter hats!
A grand total of £3,314.44 was raised which was split between the two charities - so this year we want to get even more competitive ... and up the game, in a Retro fashion!
Houndshill are hosting a One Great Retro Day, a family fun day with lots of activities, crafts and games. There'll be face painting and a creative corner alongside our giant retro games like snakes & ladders, connect 4 games and many more. There will also be lots of prizes to get your hands on in the Houndshill raffle. Come along to the Houndshill Shopping Centre on Saturday 17th June between 10am and 4pm and join us and the team from Aspired Futures in raising awareness and money to support these worthy children's charities.
With over 50 retailers to choose from, there are more often than not job vacancies available within the Houndshill Shopping Centre.

The Tableau is a massive 100ft display which features a magical water garden and an 8ft bridge and is perfect for everyone exploring the illuminations on foot.
The new Alice’s Garden is co-designed by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and the in-house team and it draws on the story of Alice in Wonderland and, in particular, the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. You can see how it's all brighter and more modern than the old version - fit for todays Illuminations display.
To celebrate their new display, the Houndshill shopping centre recently ran a competition to give their shoppers the opportunity to win a once in a life time experience to switch-on the lights of ‘Alice’s Garden’.
Donna Hannigan from Blackpool was the lucky winner of the amazing prize and she won this rare experience to turn on the Lights in 2014 when the Tableau was first installed.
Donna had a fantastic time with her family at Alice’s Garden, located on the Cliffs section on the North Promenade, when she switched the Lights on.
