It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Stick ‘n’ Step!

Cherry Tree Shopping Centre in LIscard has selected Stick ‘n’ Step as its chosen charity for this year’s festive period.

The Centre is running a wonderful Give a Gift campaign running up to Christmas, asking generous shoppers to donate a present for children who attend sessions at the cerebral palsy charity’s centres.

A giant Christmas present has been installed in the Cherry Tree Shopping Centre, where the gifts can be dropped off between now and 11 December. The presents will be shared out at the Stick ‘n’ Step Christmas party, which is being held in Leasowe Castle Hotel on 11 December. The party is being sponsored by the Gould Family Foundation and is being held for children who attend Stick ‘n’ Step and their families.
