Become a Secret Santa
That’s the Spirit! St. Enoch Centre partners with Glasgow’s Spirit of Christmas to donate gifts to local children in need.
This year St. Enoch is encouraging customers to become Secret Santas and donate gifts to support this year’s appeal. Gift ideas can be found on the Centre’s website to make it as easy as possible for shoppers.
Donations purchased by kind-hearted shoppers whilst in Centre are welcome from 10 November until 15 December and can be dropped off in the Centre’s Leith Collective store on level 1. Glasgow’s Spirit of Christmas community members who would like to donate but haven’t yet pledged a gift through the Christmas Portal can drop them off between 28 November – 15 December.
St. Enoch Centre is also supporting Glasgow’s Spirit of Christmas vision and donating the full £10 ticket price for its Meet Santa grotto to the charity. Children visiting the grotto will get to write and post their Christmas letter before meeting Santa and receiving a gift.
Glasgow’s Spirit of Christmas aims to prevent this. Founded in 2014, GSOC provides gifts for children in Glasgow affected by hardship or living in poverty. In the 9 years since its establishment, the charity has donated over £3.2 million worth of gifts to some 90,000 children. Inviting those who can become a ‘Secret Santa’ so that every child is included in Christmas.
Santa’s grotto can be found on level 1 near Vue cinema and is open weekends between 26th November and 18th December and then daily between Mon 19th and Friday 23rd December. Pre-booking online is essential.
The Glasgow Spirit of Christmas donation hub is located within The Leith Collective store on the level near H&M, gifts can be dropped off until 15 December. See www.st-enoch.com for more information.
