Tis' the season for giving! And you can give back to your local community this Christmas by supporting St Catherine's Hospice gift wrapping service.
Volunteers for St Catherine's will be offering their popular gift wrapping station in County Mall Shopping Centre in Crawley from this weekend until 24 December.
Shoppers can get their thoughtful Christmas gifts all wrapped up before the big day in a festive paper and bows in exchange for a donation to the hospice. No gift is too big for St Catherine's Christmas helpers, and your donations will make a difference towards making what may be some people's last Christmas together as memorable and special as it can be.

Last year St Catherine's gift wrapping station raised more than £5,000 towards local hospice care. St Catherine's can currently only care for one in three local terminally ill people and their families, but with the support of people like you, in the future the hospice wants to help more people when life comes full circle.
Frankie Goodall, Community Fundraising Assistant at St Catherine's said, "This is one of my favourite events of the year. And we're incredibly grateful to County Mall for their continued support of our fundraising. The money raised over the next couple of weeks will help us support more local people and their families, so that in the future no one has to face death and loss alone."
So when you're out shopping, make sure you swing by St Catherine's gift wrapping station, outside Primark on the ground floor of County Mall, to help give the gift of hospice care and get yourself Christmas ready!
