The centre wants nominations of deserving people doing their bit in the coronavirus crisis with all nominees going on to a ‘Wall of Fame’ on its website.

The competition runs until Friday, May 29 when one person will be selected at random to win a day out at Castle Quarter worth £150 to spend when it re-opens. A further 100 winners will receive a gift voucher or a bowling voucher from the venue’s Superbowl UK.

Centre Manager Robert Bradley said: “So many people in our community deserve so much thanks from all of us, whether they are our fabulous NHS workers and carers or people working in transport, in our supermarkets, those who are helping their local communities and even those struggling at home.

Also launching is Castle Quarter’s digital version of its ‘Day Out Planner’ prize game, which was extremely popular when it rebranded last year.

Mr Bradley said: “This is the digital version of the game on our website and a bit of fun while we wait until we can re-open. It’s up and running now and all you have to do is spin the Shop, Dine, Watch and Play wheels on the website. This comes up with a suggested ‘Day Out’ at Castle Quarter.

He added: “We can’t wait to re-open but will be very closely following the government’s guidelines and basing our decisions on those. In the meantime, the team here at Castle Quarter hope all our customers are staying safe and keeping well.”
