One Great Day at Romford’s Mercury


The Mercury Mall in Romford held a family fun day on Saturday, June 30, to raise funds for local children’s charity First Step and Great Ormond Street.

The Mercury was transformed into a seaside where shoppers could enjoy the ever popular ‘Wheel Of Fortune’, Seagull Shy, Hook a Duck, Retro arcade games, ice cream, face painting and even a classic car show.

Natalie Bays Deputy Centre Manager commented: “This fun day is a fantastic opportunity for families in the area to get together and enjoy a great day out whilst spending quality time together.”

One Great Day was established in 2014 and has so far raised £150,000 and has now grown to include 46 different children’s charities. Along with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, Mercury raised over £600 on the day for local charity First Step.

First Step’s mission is to provide the best possible environment to support families and to enable their young children with special needs and/or disabilities to maximise their individual potential.
