Drakes Dragon Encounter

Posted on 11th August 2011 in Plymouth Events

One of the leading business tycoons and Dragon’s den celebrity Deborah Meaden vistited staff and members of the Council today after the Drake’s Circus shopping centre won the Dragon’s Challenge, which was run in conjunction with the Evening Herald.

Mike Jones who’s the general manager of the shopping centre said “We want to pick her brains about how we can tap in to the tourism market and make the best use of how we talk to visitors to our area and attract them to Plymouth,”

This boost to the retailers and the shopping centre in general will only act as a positive to the figures that were provided recently that showed shops  throughout the country saw sales drop by 1.4% in May.

Her visit though was primarily down to the great work that ninteen organisations in Plymouth supported. They all signed up for the Dragon’s Challenge in October last year, all hoping to raise the most money for the national children’s charity.

Drakes Circus efforts contributed to a total cash pot of £42,437.25, of which other fundraisers including Nash & Co solicitors, City College Plymouth, Brittany Ferries, the Holland Inn and Bambinos nursery helped out with.

The money raised was donated to the Child’s Voice Appeal, which supports ChildLine and the NSPCC Helpline.
