A Northampton shopping centre is offering to carry out 40 ‘good deeds’ in the community as it celebrates its 40th anniversary.

Weston Favell Shopping Centre is appealing for individuals, groups and local projects to nominate themselves, whether they are looking for financial support, advice, or a helping hand from staff at the centre to provide anything from a gardener to careers advice.

Some of the good deeds have already been pledged, the first of which was to provide an empty unit in the centre for Northampton creative arts project, Reelscape Community, to use as a film studio hosting creative workshops for young people.

Kevin Legg, centre manager at Weston Favell, said: “We are where we are as a result of the loyalty and support of our shoppers over the past four decades.

“The 40 Good Deeds 2015 project is very much our way of rewarding that loyalty and hopefully creating a legacy for members of our community for the next forty years.

“We are very proud of the role that we play in the community, we’ve been the central hub for activity for many years and work hard each year to maintain that.”

Weston Favell is also marking it’s 40th year in business with major refurbishments to its exterior signage, lower mall and car park entrance.

If you know of, or are you involved in, anything or anyone that would benefit from a Weston Favell good deed, you can get in touch with the centre by emailing: or via the Weston Favell Facebook page.
