St Helens shoppers are being urged to make Christmas wishes come true for a hospice which helps youngsters with life-limiting illnesses.
Church Square Shopping Centre will be donating all of the money dropped into its Christmas Wishing Well to Derian House Children’s Hospice.
It is the centrepiece of the nativity display in St Mary’s Arcade.
Church Square manager Steven Brogan said: “Derian House supports families from St Helens and across the North West by carrying out excellent work all year round.
“I know our shoppers are always generous and I hope they will appreciate the good cause we’ve selected to benefit from this year’s Christmas display, and once again show their support by dropping donations into our Wishing Well.”
Derian House was opened after a two-year funding appeal led by a family who lost their son Derek to a progressive genetic disorder.
The name is an amalgamation of their two sons’ names, Derek and Ian.
Derian House fundraiser Judy Miller said: “We are very grateful to the Church Square Shopping Centre for allowing us to be their charity of choice this year.
“We will be delighted to collect the generous contributions from their shoppers which will help us so much with our work.”
