Need Your Gifts Wrapped? Intu Eldon Square's Charity Gift Wrapping Station Returns!


Intu Eldon Square is offering festive shoppers a gift-wrapping service this Christmas, with proceeds going to The Children’s Foundation.

At intu Eldon Square located next to Fenwick, busy gift seekers can visit the wrapping stand and have their presents beautifully wrapped by volunteers, in return for a donation to The Children’s Foundation, that aims to improve the lives of children in the North East.

Laura McVeigh, regional community and events fundraiser at The Children’s Foundation, said: “We are delighted intu Eldon Square has given The Children’s Foundation the opportunity to raise money again this year and would urge people to come visit us at the stand and take the stress out of their Christmas shopping, by letting our team of volunteers wrap all their presents.

“We have raised over £33,000 from this service over the years and we are indebted to both intu Eldon Square and the generosity of the public. The Christmas wrap stand is a fantastic way for us to raise funds to support our projects.”

Phil Steele, general manager at intu Eldon Square, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the The Children’s Foundation for another season of goodwill with our gift wrapping pop-up, which is now open daily until Christmas Eve. It can be an extremely busy time of year so it’s great to be able to support our shoppers with gift wrapping duties, all in aid of a very worthy cause.”
