CHARITY

We are committed to our core values & beliefs

We always strive to put people first and treasure our local communities. To do this, we and some of our traders have partnered with a handful of charities and non-for-profit organisations. 

Fatboy Slim Homecoming

Martlets Hospice

In February 2022 we welcomed local boy and international superstar DJ Fatboy Slim (aka Norman Cook) to BOXPARK Croydon for a special one-off concert in aid of Martlets Hospice.

Having grown up nearby, seeing all his first gigs and going to his first clubs in Croydon, he never got the chance to play his old stomping ground... until this moment.

The crowd were certainly not disappointed as he played a number of his well-known hits including Praise You and Right Here Right Now.

Martlets Hospice is a local charity that provides care and support to terminally ill people in Brighton & Hove and the surrounding area. For more information go to martlets.org.uk

We were delighted to have raised an incredible £29,500 for the hospital.

Go Fund Me

Mama Jacq's

Our Bajan street food traders at Mama Jacqs launched a fundraiser in April 2021 as part of their mission to raise £10,000 to provide food and essentials items to individuals and families that suffered from the eruption of the long-dormant La Soufriere Volcano on the tiny island of St. Vincent. The team at Mama Jacqs were born in St Vincent and felt devastated about the disaster, so in aid, they sent 20+ containers of supplies for the people of the Island and BOXPARK also donated funds to help spread awareness of the Go Fund Me campaign.
