THANKS TO all our customers who joined us at Wellington Square this Christmas and helped us make it a December to Remember!
We welcomed street theatre throughout the month to put a smile on customer’s faces. From a very naughty Christmas tree to a trio of Victorian Christmas carollers, they were up and down the mall keeping families entertained throughout the day.
But the biggest hit of them all was Elton WRONG who got families in the festive mood with plenty of singalongs, games and selfies!
Bella Canta Choir and One Voice Middlesbrough also joined us and their amazing renditions of Christmas songs both old and new delighted the crowds.
We hid gifts around the centre with clues on social media as to where to find them – all gifts were found under an hour and our winners were thrilled with their gift cards.
Our tenants took part in a Snowman decorating competition. 2470 votes later, the grand winner was B&M with their snowman apprentice! The Management pick was iStation who enjoyed their fizz and biscuits.
Plenty of pictures were also taken in our giant light-up bauble with Gem and her adorable son taking home a £25 gift card.
We also visited three local care homes to deliver hampers full of goodies, mince pies and gifts from local school children who created a whole host of amazing decorations and Christmas cards for the residents. All the care homes were very thankful to receive the gifts and especially loved the gifts from the children.
Our staff also took part in National Christmas Jumper Day and donned festive knits to help us raise £50 for Save the Children.
All our staff and tenants also took part in a very festive Christmas video – watch the video below and guess which pair took over 50 takes?!
All that’s left to say is a BIG thank you to everyone who joined us in 2021 and we can’t wait for 2022!
