Residents who use Merton Council’s All Saints Centre for adults with physical and learning disabilities were given Christmas presents this week as part of Centre Court Shopping Centre’s Wimbledon Wishes campaign.
All Saint’s members were presented with a Body Shop gift box, a decorative sign from Citrus Gifts, water speakers from Red5 and a selection of Christmas ornaments from Paper Chase.
Shoppers young and old, charities, carers, local volunteer groups and nurses were invited to nominate someone they know deserving of a Wimbledon Wish.
Merton Council’s cabinet member for adult social care and health Councillor Caroline Cooper-Marbiah said: “I know that everyone from All Saints really enjoyed the festive morning at Centre Court Shopping Centre. Thanks go to Centre Court and other businesses for recognising the fantastic work that is being done at the All Saints Centre.”
Director of Centre Court Shopping Centre, Suzy Wood said: “We could not be more excited about our Christmas venture at Centre Court. We wanted a feel-good campaign that would involve the entire Wimbledon community and embrace the spirit of Christmas. Right now, the shopping centre feels like Santa’s workshop, with everyone preparing to make this year a truly memorable one. It is lovely that people are making Wimbledon Wish’s for their loved ones. Along with our partners we will have enjoyed spreading joy and making Christmas Wimbledon Wishes come true.”
