Charlotte Carnell, Events Coordinator at Galloway’s, said: “We are thrilled to be able to spread some Christmas joy to families again after the pandemic meant we couldn’t open last year.

“Our grotto in 2019 raised £11,700 and we are hoping Preston shoppers will once again support Galloway’s by visiting us whilst doing their Christmas shopping in St George’s.

“You can get your photo taken with Father Christmas in his grotto. We can also help you with your wrapping, so come along and get those all-important present wrapped. All donations are greatly appreciated.

“It really does make a difference to thousands of people living with sight loss across Lancashire and Sefton, so please come and see us.

“We are so grateful to everyone at St George’s who have given us so much support with our grotto and helped us to raise thousands over the years.”

If anyone would like get involved and volunteer at St George’s Shopping Centre, email or call 01772 744148.
