A Wrexham retailer is hosting a ‘Christmas Weekend’ by helping provide some festive cheer to youngsters at Hope House Children’s Hospice

To help make the event a success, Wrexham Volkswagen is asking people to buy an extra present while out shopping and drop it off to the Rhosrobin showroom on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th December.

Families will be welcomed by Father Christmas and while he talks to children about their Christmas present wish list, parents can enjoy a mince pie and warm drink.

Alison Marsh, fundraising manager at Hope House Children’s Hospice, said: “The ‘Christmas Weekend’ is a fantastic idea and we hope many people come along to Wrexham Volkswagen, donate a gift and enjoy a mince pie.

“It costs £1.8m a year to run the Hospice and we rely almost entirely upon donations, as well as many generous individuals who fundraise on our behalf by organising incredible fundraising events across the region.

“Christmas is all about thinking of others, and what better way than to bring a smile to a child’s face by donating a present.”

Wrexham Volkswagen’s brand manager, Ben Gilbert, said: “We’re delighted to be able to help Hope House Children’s Hospice and trust many people can find the time to donate a gift.

“Staff at Wrexham Volkswagen will be donating a present and offering festive refreshments to keep people warm in the cold weather.”

Wrexham Volkswagen’s Rhosrobin showroom will host Father Christmas from 10am-4pm on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th December.
