At the Heart of the Community

Nutgrove is proud to be a part of the local community, listening to our communities, our customers, and colleagues, to make sure we understand their changing needs.

We’ve supported our local community throughout our 40-year history, because we know a vibrant community is essential for all of us.

We are committed to supporting social cohesion, economic prosperity, and inclusion – by being relevant in our local neighbourhoods and within our growing catchment. Nutgrove wants to be a brand that retailers want to be a part of, colleagues want to work and that customers can trust.

We aim to take a progressive approach to our community engagement. Our approach includes customers, colleagues, charity partners and local communities. We have identified four ways in which we can make a difference as a shopping centre

David Glynn

Delighted to support the David Glynn Foundation, supporting families fighting childhood cancer. David Glynn Foundation is Nutgrove Shopping Centres charity partner. Our primary focus is concentrated in raising funds for the David Glynn Foundation, through tap and go stands in the centre and through our management teams’ involvement with the charity’s activities throughout the year.

Laura Lynn

What an achievement! The LauraLynn Pop Up Shop in Nutgrove Shopping Centre raised an incredible €37,000 for LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice. This was organised by LauraLynn Founder Jane McKenna alongside her close friends Cathy, Patricia and Ciara. The shop was open for three weeks in October selling clothing, gifts, bags, jewellery, and much more. The support from people in Nutgrove and beyond was more than ever expected. Organiser, Cathy, said: "It’s fantastic to be able to make this generous donation to LauraLynn which would not have been possible without the hundreds of customers who supported us over those few weeks. A massive thank you to those who gave up their time, donated items and visited over the three weeks.
