St John's Shopping Centre is proud to announce that we will be partnering with Tay FM’s Cash for Kids as their official ‘Mission Christmas’ drop off point in Perth City Centre.
There are many children in our local area that will wake up to no presents under the tree this Christmas. Mission Christmas aims to help disadvantaged children living in poverty across Tayside, by providing them with a gift to open on Christmas Day, to help lift their spirits and bring them some well needed festive cheer.
Last year they supported over 5000 children during Mission Christmas. These children were identified by health professionals as living in poverty, and without the support of Mission Christmas, they may have woken up without any presents to open and enjoy on Christmas Day.
Without the kind and generous donations from local people throughout the months of November and December, Mission Christmas would not be possible. Tay FM and Cash for Kids work tirelessly around the clock making sure these kids have the same festive fun as other children, and we at St Johns Shopping Centre are delighted to help with their quest.
There will be a present drop-off point within the mall of St Johns Shopping Centre, where people can drop off a gift that will help to bring a smile to a young disadvantaged child in Tayside’s face come Christmas day. Any gift, large or small, for a child aged between birth and 18 years old, will be greatly appreciated.
We will be working with the retailers within the shopping centre to give shoppers ideas and inspiration for gifts for different age groups. Look out for the Gift Idea Posters that will be displayed in the mall throughout November and December. The gifts that are in particularly short supply are those for babies from birth age, and for teenagers and children aged between 12- 18. However, all gifts are very important and any donation is greatly appreciated.
To help you out, we have put togther some gift ideas starting from under £5 - Click Here
If you would like to donate a gift, you can drop off your present in the mall at any time during opening hours, and our helpful Christmas elves will make sure that your presents make their way to a child in need this Christmas. They will also make sure that any children handing in a present will be gifted with a special sticker to say thank-you.
