Customers in Preston will have the opportunity to write festive messages on Christmas baubles for the Wish Tree, and win prizes in a fantastic festive raffle.


The Christmas Your Way raffle will offer customers the chance to win all the items featured on specially created Christmas trees.

The raffle will open on the night and close on Friday 17 December.

Sarah Murray, Partnership and Events Manager said: “Christmas is a time of year we all look forward to at Dobbies’ Preston store, and we can’t wait to welcome people for a full festive experience with our late opening evening.

“There will be a free welcome drink and a range of Christmas gifts, decorations and products to choose from.

“Most importantly, we are raising funds for our national charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust, who do incredible work with young people across the country. It’s going to be the perfect way to get the festive season started.”

Donna Bednarek, Senior Relationship Manager for Teenage Cancer Trust said: “We are absolutely delighted to collaborating with Dobbies as they stay open late on 25 November.

“The donations from Dobbies’ customers will enable us to give the gift of care from our nurses, or the gift of community on one of our specialist units, to young cancer patients across the UK.”
