At The Centre we know that Christmas 2020 might be different to the festive seasons of years gone by, but we’re hoping to spread a little Christmas cheer by creating a giant mural celebrating the ‘Spirit of Christmas’, made up of photos of your happiest festive moments.

We’re inviting you to send in your favourite Christmas photos which showcase the joy of the festive season for you - whether it’s an image of your family on Christmas morning gathered around the tree, a snap of little ones sledging in the snow or a picture-perfect robin on a holly branch.

The winning images will be compiled in a huge collage which will be displayed in The Centre at the end of November alongside a special donation box raising funds for The Centre’s Charity of the Year, Tiny Changes. It will also be featured on the shopping centre’s social media channels, @shopthecentre #spreadingthefestivespirit, for those who can’t make it into the mall.
