Charity gift wrapping service
This year we are bringing back our ever popular charity gift wrapping desk for the Christmas period. Each day in December until Christmas Eve we will be inviting national and local charities into the centre to raise money. Volunteers on the desk will beautifully wrap your festive shopping and gifts in exchange for a small donation. The desk will be open during centre opening hours and located on the lower mall near M&S.
Give a Gift with Heart FM
We're working with Heart Hertfordshire and local charity Mencap to spread some joy to children who are in need this Christmas. We're asking our shoppers to get involved by purchasing something extra along with their Christmas shopping to donate to a local child in time for Christmas. All you need to do is buy a toy from your favourite shop and drop it in to our giving box in centre. We'll make sure to pass all of the toys over to Santa so he can deliver them to needy boys and girls in time for the big day.
Make a wish and make a difference! Pop your loose change in to the wishing box to see our Christmas tree light up the centre. All donations will go to local charitiy HomeStart.
The intu Watford Gift Card
Treat them to the ultimate Christmas treat with the intu Gift card, available to spend in over 130 of our stores.
