05 October, 2018

It’s that time of the year when the streets begin to be transformed by festive lights and we know the Christmas shopping season is well and truly upon us. To help you prepare for Christmas 2018, Dobbies is hosting a magical evening for its customers to shop this year’s trends in aid of its national charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust.

Activities on the night include demonstrations on how to build a living wreath with succulents, how to create a Christmas terrarium as well as a traditional planted container. There shall be a variety of exclusive offers and entertainment throughout the night as well as decorating tips from Dobbies’ in-store experts. Hamper stations will also be set up to help shoppers create a truly bespoke gift for loved ones.

Dobbies has chosen Teenage Cancer Trust as its first ever annual national charity having teamed up with the organisation for Christmas 2015 and 2016 raising over £350,000 over both seasonal periods. On the night, look out for the charity’s wish tree baubles, for a small donation guests are able to write and place wishes onto Dobbies’ in-store Christmas tree.

Teenage Cancer Trust makes sure the seven young people aged 13 to 24 diagnosed with cancer every day, don’t face it alone. They provide world-class cancer care and support in specialist units, local hospitals and in homes across the UK. The charity is there at every stage, from diagnosis through treatment and after treatment and they bring young people together so they can support each other.

A Dobbies spokesperson comments: “We are delighted to be kicking off the festive season with a special fundraising evening raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust. The charity does fantastic work in the support they offer to young people and their families. Come along to spark some ideas for what your Christmas could look like this year, or even get a head start on that present list, we have exclusive offers and food sampling too which always is a hit with our customers.”

A spokesperson Teenage Cancer Trust adds: “We are delighted to be joining Dobbies at this fantastic seasonal event once again.
