A Gift For All Christmas Appeal

Donate a gift for a local child or elderly person and help spread some festive cheer

Building on the heart-warming generosity from our community last year, this festive season Merton Giving is partnering with Centre Court Shopping Centre to encourage local people and businesses to donate a Christmas Gift to some of our local residents who might not otherwise receive one.

The Gift For All Christmas Appeal will work alongside local charities to distribute gifts to help spread some festive cheer. Organisations including Age UK Merton, Commonside Trust, Friends in St Helier, Merton and Morden Guild, Polish Family, Sustainable Merton and Wimbledon Guild are on-board to distribute gifts to their clients in need and help spread some festive cheer.

How it works

To donate a gift:

Select who you’re buying for

We’re collecting for;

Adults, including elderly residents (male & female)

Children (boys & girls)

Young Teenagers (male & female)

Place your gift into a gift bag with a gift tag indicating who the gift is intended for

Please don’t wrap the gift so it can be viewed to allow a quick check before being gifted.
