Have yourself a Happy Wrappy Christmas at Festival Place and help fund vital hospice nursing care at the same time.

The retail and leisure destination is once again hosting the St Michael’s Hospice Happy Wrappy gift wrapping service at the centre throughout December.

Customers are asked to make a donation to the local hospice in return for having their purchases beautifully gift-wrapped – last year, the service raised more than £1,000 to help fund nursing care.

Festival Place’s charity of the year for the last five years, St Michael’s Hospice provides care to people across North Hampshire who are affected by life-limiting illness.

“The wonderful Happy Wrappy service is a much-loved part of our festive events at Festival Place and really helps everyone get into the Christmas spirit.

“When you’re doing your Christmas shopping, pop by to get all your gifts beautifully wrapped and ready and help raise another fantastic sum for the hospice this year.”
