Buchanan Galleries Launches Campaign to Spread Goodwill this Christmas

8th December 2023 @ 9:00 am - 25th December 2023 @ 12:00 am

  • and kindness to all this Christmas.

Shoppers and visitors are invited to experience Christmas with love at Buchanan Galleries this December, as the centre embraces the season of goodwill.

Together with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Social Bite, and No.1 Befriending Agency, Buchanan Galleries has launched various campaigns to encourage visitors to share that feel-good feeling whilst they complete their Christmas shopping this December.

Buchanan Galleries’ official charity partner, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, will be hosting a range of activities and initiatives to help spread joy this festive season, whilst raising vital funds to support children undergoing treatment in hospital and their families.

The charity has launched its popular pop-up shop, located beneath the iconic flower wall in the centre, offering shoppers a variety of unique Christmas cards and gifts. Visitors will also be graced with the joyous sounds of choir performances by local schools, hospital choir groups and local ensembles, creating a delightful atmosphere with the sound of music.

To enhance the Christmas shopping experience, a gift-wrapping service will be available within the charity’s flagship store from Friday 8th December where volunteers will be offering a helping hand to help shoppers achieve the perfect finish on Christmas presents. On Wednesday 20th December, the charity will be joined by players and staff from Glasgow Warriors, to help wrap presents for customers for one day only.

All proceeds raised will go to help fund state-of-the-art medical equipment and life-changing care in the children’s hospital in Glasgow and across Scotland.

Buchanan Galleries is also supporting Social Bite, a charity that helps put an end to homelessness, with its annual Festival of Kindness initiative. With an aim to provide over 300,000 gifts, meals, and essential items to homeless and vulnerable people this Christmas, those wishing to contribute and spread warmth and care this season can donate a physical gift to the Christmas tree situated outside Social Bite’s coffee shop, or a monetary donation at Buchanan Galleries’ golden Christmas tree, located by John Lewis & Partners, whilst they go about their shopping.

To help combat loneliness this Christmas, the Glasgow shopping centre has installed a ‘Listening Bench’ in partnership with No.1 Befriending Agency. Located on the first floor, under the holly tree near Boots, the bench provides an inclusive space where individuals can come together and strike up a conversation to help tackle loneliness.

Kathy Murdoch, Centre Manager at Buchanan Galleries, said “As we gear up to the most wonderful time of the year, Buchanan Galleries is buzzing with activity, and we’re helping spread the festive joy and goodwill this Christmas.

“As a shopping centre, we’re driven to give something back to our local community, and we wanted to emulate this in the centre by supporting these great charities, each with their unique manifestos to help the vulnerable and those in need, ensuring that everyone has a very happy Christmas.”
