Visitors to intu Metrocentre can ensure beautifully wrapped Christmas presents this festive season with a quick visit to the Marie Curie gift wrapping kiosk located in upper Town Square next to Oasis.
Volunteers from the charity will be on hand to wrap Christmas presents of all shapes and sizes in return for a donation to a very worthwhile cause – all funds raised will support Marie Curie services here in the region.
The gift wrapping kiosk is located in Upper Town Square, near Oasis, from Monday 10 December to Sunday 23 December – meaning that gorgeous gifts are still achievable even for last minute Christmas shoppers! Presents can be handed over at the kiosk, where visitors can choose from a variety of festive wrapping paper.
