Giving Grotto

We’re helping our local community this Christmas by taking donations on behalf of our charity partner Mustard Tree.

This Christmas, it’s more important than ever to give back to our local community and support those who may be struggling during the Winter months and beyond. Manchester Arndale has partnered with Greater Manchester charity Mustard Tree to help make Christmas special and provide much-needed items to families and individuals during these difficult times.

Mustard Tree runs a range of projects, all with the aim of providing support and working towards long-term solutions for the homeless and those living in poverty across Greater Manchester.

Our helpful elves will be on hand at the Giving Grotto inside Candy Cane Central, collecting items that will help families who may be struggling. We’d love your help and will be collecting donations of any of the following items:

  • Christmas selection boxes
  • Advent calendars
  • Children’s toys
  • Warm / waterproof clothing for people in crisis
  • Gift sets / stocking fillers
  • Perfume / aftershave sets
  • Christmas decorations

If you can, please buy an extra gift from any store and drop it off at the Giving Grotto from 22 November to 24 December.

Thank you for helping those who need it most this Christmas.
