Building on the heart-warming generosity from the community last year, this festive season Merton Giving is partnering with Centre Court Shopping Centre to encourage local people and local businesses to donate a Christmas Gift and help spread some festive cheer.
The Gift For All Christmas Appeal will support some of our local residents who might otherwise not receive a Christmas present and we’re partnering with local charities to help distribute the donations.
Diana Sterck, chair of Merton Giving said:
We were incredibly moved and thankful for the generosity of our local community last year which enabled us to provide over 400 gifts to vulnerable residents. 2021 has continued to be another challenging year for so many and we’d like to continue to support residents who might not otherwise receive a gift to help make a positive difference.
Lynsey Coleman, Senior Marketing Manager at Centre Court Shopping Centre added:
Centre Court are very proud to be partnering with Merton Giving this year to continue their Christmas Gift Appeal. If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s the value of coming together to benefit the community including those who may not have the same Christmas experience that we all cherish. We encourage anyone who is able to donate a gift this festive season to someone that won’t otherwise receive one.
We’d love you to support the appeal and help us spread some festive cheer.
How to Make a Donation
- Select who you’re buying for. This year we’re collecting for; adults, including elderly residents (male and female), children (boys and girls) and young teenagers (male and female).
- Place your gift into a gift bag with a gift tag indicating who the gift is intended for. Please don’t wrap the gift so it can be viewed to allow a quick check before being gifted.
- Drop off to Centre Court Shopping Centre, via their Management Centre or a member of staff. Other donation points will be announced on our website.
To enable gifts to be distributed in time for Christmas, the last date to donate a gift is Monday 13th December.
If you would like to make a bulk donation of gift items then please contact email@example.com.
