Organisers Francis House Children's Hospice welcome you to this exciting annual project involving organisations, community groups and individuals coming together in the decoration of a one-off Christmas tree.
The trees are then prominently displayed to the public at Quayside MediaCityUK shopping mall for six weeks in the run up to Christmas.
Previous participants and top brands include: L’Oreal, Mottram Hall, Fibre Hair Salon, Towers Business Park, The Hilton Garden Inn Lancashire Cricket Club, Virgin Media, Tesco, Swizzels Matlow, Cast of Coronation Street and Cold Feet, Two Little Ducks, Manchester United and Manchester City Football clubs plus many more!
Customers browse the trees, packed with fantastic gifts, experiences and vouchers in the Francis House pop-up shop when the event launches on 30th October 2021.
Bids are placed on each tree to raise vital funds for Francis House Children's Hospice based in Didsbury, Manchester. The trees will also be available to view online at the Festival of Trees auction website www.festivaloftrees.co.uk where bids can be placed from the comfort of your own home.
The auction starts and the excitement mounts! Whoever has the highest bid on each tree when bidding closes on 5th December gets to take the tree home in time for Christmas.
Christmas merchandise is also on sale in the pop-up shop as well as the opportunity to win fantastic raffle prizes. The shop closes on Sunday 12th December.
With some of the trees fetching hundreds of pounds each, the Festival of Trees raises much-needed income for the hospice and the charity is grateful to Quayside MediaCityUK for providing a retail unit free of charge, and to all the tree sponsors.
