It’s time to spruce things up this Christmas, as North London welcomes the return of Brent Cross’s beautiful Giving Tree in an annual scheme that ensures every child receives the perfect Christmas gift. The much-loved Giving Tree returns throughout December, as customers will have the chance to become Secret Santa’s for local children in need in partnership with Barnet Children’s Services.

Tags with the age and gender of a local child can be picked from the branches of the beautifully decorated tree on the upper balustrade of the centre. Shoppers then go and purchase the perfect gift for that child and bring it back to the Information Desk to be collected and delivered to the child just in time for Christmas Day.

In 2018, over 1,500 gifts were purchased for local children through the scheme and this year hopes to be the biggest and best yet, with a beautiful, decorative tree that will appeal to all.

For the first time Brent Cross will also be offering an exclusive gift-wrapping service by its resident elves, so customers can be stress-free ahead of the big day. Available from the 30th November until Christmas Eve in Mall 3, shoppers can have elf confidence knowing their precious, thoughtful gifts are in good hands.

To get a gift-wrapping slot, simply use the PLUS app to redeem ‘free gifting’, drop the gifts off to our capable elves, grab some egg nog or a mince pie, and then return to find your gifts perfectly wrapped. There is also the option to donate to Barnet Children’s Services through the collection tin at the gift-wrapping station.
