Frenchgate - Fabulous at 50

Frenchgate - Fabulous at 50

Frenchgate Shopping Centre Doncaster is set to celebrate its 50th Birthday in style!

On Saturday 6th October Frenchgate will celebrate 50 years in business and is inviting its loyal customers to mark five decades in business by giving away 500 cupcakes.

We have worked with the team at Frenchgate for four years and this client allows me to combine two passions of mine – shopping and PR!

We have recently added Frenchgate’s social media to our portfolio and we are loving keeping the centre’s loyal customers up to date with the latest trends, store news and offers across social media platforms.

During our time with Frenchgate we have worked with them on industry award winning campaigns – something which I am very proud of. Frenchgate for me is a great example of how we become an integral extended member of a client’s team as we work very closely with Karen Staniforth, Assistant General Manager – who is also responsible for the centre’s marketing.

Mayor Ros Jones will be on hand to help the centre celebrate five decades in business along with Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Dan Fell and Centre General Manager Paddy Mellon.

As part of the 50th birthday celebrations a photography exhibition will be unveiled, entitled ‘The Faces of Frenchgate’. The exhibition will showcase a year's worth of photographs by Warren Draper. Warren has been working with the centre since 2017, taking photos of shoppers to create The Faces of Frenchgate exhibition.

Frenchgate General Manager Paddy Mellon, said: “Our 50th Birthday is such a milestone for the centre and we want as many of our loyal customers to celebrate with us.

“Throughout 2018, we have been celebrating 50 years of Frenchgate heritage with a series of special events. We have been asking shoppers to share their memories of the centre and had a fantastic response. It really demonstrates how Frenchgate is a central hub for the community and plays such a big part in many people’s lives.

“We really want to say a huge thank you to all the people who’ve supported us throughout the years and hope that they will join us on 6th October for an extra special birthday celebration!”

Congratulations Frenchgate on your 50th Birthday from everyone at HRM - we are looking forward to celebrating with you!
