Celebrating A Community Christmas!

At the heart of The Friary, located outside Next, our Giving Tree is on display in support of Shooting Star Children’s Hospices.

Come and support by taking a tag from the tree, purchasing the gift written on the tag and then dropping it off at the Centre Management Office located on level 1 next to The Christmas Shop before 5pm on Sunday 17th December. Please ensure all gifts are left unwrapped.

All donated gifts will then be delivered to the hospice which supports families from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional, and medical care.

You can also enjoy our first ever Christmas Tree Festival where 10 local charities have taken time to design and create a unique tree for the chance to win a £1,000 donation. As well as seeing all the beautiful decorations and lights, you will be able to vote for your favourite Christmas Tree.
