Christmas has arrived at Galloway's

We’re proud to launch our popular Christmas shop, jam-packed with Christmas cards, decorations and gifts yule love this festive season. And the best bit? All of the proceeds raised will go towards helping us support people living with full or partial sight loss across Lancashire and Sefton.

And that’s not all! We’re so proud to announce that we’ll once again be partnering with St George’s Shopping Centre in Preston, with the return of our hugely popular Galloway’s Christmas Grotto. Bring your children down for a chance to meet a very, very special guest - Santa Claus will be joining us to give children on the good list a gift, and there will be a chance to have a picture taken and printed, too. And the most important bit - all of the children who visit Santa will get the chance to tell him their Christmas wishes!

Fabienne Clough, Income Generation Manager said:

“We’re delighted to partner with St George’s shopping Centre again this year, bringing back the Galloway’s Christmas Grotto. Every year this fantastic opportunity raises over £10,000 to help support our vital services across Lancashire and Sefton, and we could not be more grateful to every person who visits us! Our gift wrapping station will be back again this year, we’re so excited for the chance to be out in the community talking to our supporters.”

The Galloway’s Grotto will be open 11am-4pm every Saturday and Sunday from 3rd – 18th December and every day from 19th to 23rd December. Walk-in slots will be available; however, to avoid disappointment, we advise you to take advantage of our morning slots, which are available for pre-booking. Tickets to visit Santa cost £5.

“St Georges shopping centre is excited for the opening of the Galloways grotto and gift wrapping service this Christmas. We have worked with Galloways for many years, and we are proud to support them once again. They are an amazing charity making a di erence to thousands of blind or partially sighted people across Lancashire. So, to get into the festive spirit come shop with us, meet Santa or utilise the gift wrapping services. For just £5, each child will receive a gift and a printed photograph of their magical moment with Santa. All proceeds go to Galloway’s.”
