We’re All About Giving at Christmas


Christmas is a time for giving and this is exactly what we’re doing in Devonport this Christmas. Devonport’s community groups and businesses are working together to take the stress out of Christmas for you and for those most in need.


Add an Extra Gift for City Mission

We’ve teamed up with City Mission and you’ll find collection boxes and City Mission piggy banks in retailers, as well as the Devonport Information Building. Participating shops will have a small display of extra gifts appropriate to add to your Christmas shop and we’ll see to it that these go to the people who need them most. Gifts for the Elderly, for infants and for older teenagers are in particular need, so go on, add an extra gift this year.


Volunteer-led Present Wrapping

Bring presents with receipt of purchase to 3 Victoria Road and leave them to be wrapped by our wonderful volunteers. The wrapping station is open December weekends 11-3pm and 6-8pm Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd December.


Christmas Giveaways

Because we believe in giving at Christmas, we’ve decided to give too. We have 15 spot prizes to gift to shoppers during our late night shopping nights Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd December 5-8pm. Prizes include a hair cut and blow wave from Sugar Suite Hair Salon, a Segway tour for two with Magic Broomstick Segways, a tea set from Echo Designer Living, cafe and restaurant vouchers from Corelli's, Manuka and Stone Oven, a Computer clean up from Clean Green Computers and more.
