The Derby shop asked customers and the local community online for their choice of charity and Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre was chosen. David Harris said: “We are very grateful to everyone who voted for the charity online.  It will ensure disadvantaged children enjoy a much deserved holiday at our centre in Skegness.” White Stuff Derby manager Allan Hale said: “We will be supporting the charity with activities in the shop and our staff will also be joining in practical projects to support fund raising and the centre itself in Skegness. “The Cathedral Quarter is the perfect fit for White Stuff in Derby.  We work hard to build up a family of customers who come here not just to shop but to relax and enjoy a coffee. “The interest from people as we have been refurbishing the shop has been incredible and we expect to be very busy – particularly in the run up to Christmas.  “The Cathedral Quarter BID have been extremely helpful in our move to Derby and we are very much looking forward to becoming part of the local business community here.” Martin Langsdale concluded: “White Stuff will greatly enhance the fashion retail offer in the Cathedral Quarter – complementing the businesses already established here – and will be a fantastic draw for customers far and wide. “Their arrival signals that the work that we have all been doing under the BID for the past seven years to position the Cathedral Quarter as a high quality destination is bearing fruit. “Our efforts as part of the wider inward investment partnership in the city have attracted a wide range of first rate independent retailers, food and drink establishments and professional firms. Now, the arrival of White Stuff is pivotal in the future growth of the Cathedral Quarter’s reputation.  “We look forward to working with White Stuff as part of our overall work to raise the profile of the Cathedral Quarter and attract more people and businesses back into this unique part of the city centre.” For more information about all the businesses in the Cathedral Quarter, please visit;like the Facebook page cathedralquarterderby and follow on Twitter @DerbyCQ,

Over 60000 leaflets have been produced and will be distributed with the Derby Telegraph today (December 12), in school book bags and through art boxes in locations throughout the city. They will also be available at businesses in both areas and will be handed out in the streets by the BIDs’ Ranger teams. There is also the opportunity to win £500 worth of shopping vouchers to spend in any of the shops in Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter. Simply fill in the voucher and return by Wednesday December 17th for the chance to win a special bonus before Christmas. This voucher is also available to download online at Martin Langsdale, who chairs the Cathedral Quarter Management Group, which drives forward activities under the area’s Business Improvement District (BID), said:“We have been concerned for a while that there has not been a leaflet featuring an overview of all the activity happening over the Christmas period. “We were therefore keen to work in partnership with St Peters Quarter on this special promotion to showcase the whole spectrum of festive entertainment on offer in Derby city centre in the run up to Christmas. “The Cathedral Quarter is the city centre’s premium retail destination, but visitors want a wider experience and this choice of entertainment and events will be an important factor in people’s decision of where to go, especially at this time of year. “We have been pleased to coordinate this leaflet on behalf of the major venues in the city. Both BID’s are also funding a large majority of the street events and activity happening this Christmas. “I hope that this leaflet demonstrates that there is something for everyone in Derby this Christmas and will encourage more people to come to Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter to shop, dine out and enjoy time with family and friends.” Stephen Jeffery, chair of St Peters Quarter Board, added: “We have worked hard to draw together the diverse menu of events and entertainment in these two areas in the coming weeks and the added bonus of the prize draw will hopefully encourage people to pick up the leaflets with the chance of winning £500 free shopping vouchers. “This also helps illustrate the important positioning of St Peters Quarter as the area located between Intu and Cathedral Quarter, and containing the city centre’s traditional high street.”
