Saturday 15th December - Sunday 16th December
Solihull-based shopping centre, Mell Square is easing the pressures of Christmas shopping by partnering with Solihull Hospital Charity to host a free Christmas gift wrapping service on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th December (10am-3pm).
Taking place in a retail unit on Mill Lane North (in between Reiker Shoes and Fired Earth), shoppers will be encouraged to give a charitable donation at the Christmas pop-up store, which will be complete with festive nibbles and music. All donations received from the gift wrapping activity will help fund the Christmas appeal at Solihull Hospital. This includes buying hampers for patients and staff to share, gifts for children and young people with cancer, and free TV and parking on Christmas Day for hospital visitors.
Rob Hemus, IM Properties asset director, said: “As Christmas is a time to spend with loved ones, we are looking forward to working alongside Solihull Hospital Charity in a bid to bring Christmas to the patients at our local hospital. We had fantastic feedback from last year’s Christmas gift wrapping pop-up store, so we hope to see our shoppers show their generosity once more.”
Samantha Howell, fundraising manager at Solihull Hospital Charity, said: “The Charity is very excited to join forces with Mell Square for the second year. The support we receive from our charity partners is crucial in allowing us to continue the work we do, especially during the festive season when Solihull Hospital will be busier than ever. On behalf of all the staff and patients at Solihull Hospital, I would like to say a massive thank you to Mell Square and I look forward to the activity.”
