The Giving Tree is a partnership between Bloomfield and North Down & Ards Women’s Aid. Now on the mall beside Timpsons, each year the Giving Tree benefits local children who are unable to spend Christmas at home due to domestic violence.
If you would like to help please visit the Giving Tree, select the gift you would like to donate, scribble it out on the tree and then purchase the item and drop it off in Hays Travel.
Each and every year we are blown away by the generosity of our customers and we don’t expect this Christmas to be any different – THANK YOU!
Our herd of Rockin Reindeer is on the mall now! Each year 8 local primary schools receive reindeer to decorate. The reindeers’ hollow bellies and QR codes allow customers to donate as a way of voting for their favourite.
The school whose reindeer collects the most wins £1,000 for school funds and the chance to select one of the two charities for next year. All donations go to charity and this year our charity partners are One Great Day and NSPCC.

As part of our commitment to making Bloomfield a pleasant and easy experience for all customers, we are introducing a quiet hour from 6pm – 7pm every Thursday from 14th November 2019 onwards. During this time, we will turn off the music on the mall and within may of our stores. We have also asked the stores who have the capability to mute their tills during this quiet hour.
We are working closely with all stores to try and make Bloomfield accessible for all. This is an ongoing process and we appreciate any feedback on how we can continue to improve and make the centre a pleasant experience for all.
