In October we held our first festive shopping evening and it was a huge success, so we have decided to host another one on Thursday, November 1 from 6pm until 8.30pm and help out our chosen Charity of the Year, Reminiscence Learning, at the same time.
Representatives from the charity will be in attendance in our Mini Emporium on the top floor and they’ll be chatting to people about the fantastic work they do, including its community projects.
We are thrilled to have the charity coming along as it is a great opportunity to raise awareness and the team will be collecting on the night, so any donations will be very gratefully received.
Reminiscence Learning offers a wide range of community projects from music and memories with live performances from musicians to themed reminiscence, making use of their extensive library of props and memorabilia.
Its ‘Activity Angels’ visit care homes and day centres to deliver bespoke activity sessions designed to suit individuals needs with opportunities for group engagement as well as one to one interaction.
It also delivers training for health care professionals, family carers, volunteers, businesses and services.
The charity has also created and delivered the multi award-winning intergenerational dementia awareness, Archie Project, which links primary schools, care homes, sheltered housing schemes, businesses/services and community members to ultimately reduce the fear and stigma often associated with dementia and create more dementia friendly communities.
As well as picking up Christmas gifts, greetings cards, wrap and more, you will also be able to try on and purchase pre-loved clothing and accessories from Designer Wear on the top floor with brands like Jasper Conran, Gucci and Joseph.
If you make a purchase during the evening you will receive a free raffle ticket and be entered into a draw to win one of four £25 gift vouchers. We will be handing out raffle tickets at the till and will draw four winning tickets on the night. Each winner will be contacted the following day.
By entering the raffle people agree to have their photographs taken for social media purposes.
We hope to see lots of you there!
