The Christmas Decorators has been working hard across the UK to bring a smile to people’s faces throughout the festive period.
In Worcester, the local decorating franchise unit based in Kempsey installed a stack of giant baubles in Cathedral Square. Each of the 10 huge spheres were a festive red colour and measured a metre in diameter. Commissioned by Worcester City Council, the art display is intended to complement the region’s “Shop local, safely” campaign.
Hopefully, the seasonal installation will raise the spirits of shoppers passing by and encourage people to share photographs with family and friends.
Further north in Blackpool, The Christmas Decorators has sponsored a festive display in the entrance to the city’s Victoria Hospital. The scene, fondly labelled the ‘National Elf Service’ features Christmas elves in a workshop. It was dreamt up by the Blue Skies Hospitals Fund and Blackpool Teaching Hospitals facilities team.
The Christmas Decorators supported the cheering display, along with Barton Grange Garden Centre, Lidl, Mediaprint and Christmas Trees and Lights.
Kila Redfearn, Head of Fundraising at Blue Skies Hospitals, was pleased to see how the set-up has affected people’s moods at the medical institution:
"We’re thrilled with the reaction we’ve had to the display. It’s not been the easiest year and our healthcare staff have been at the forefront of the fight, so hopefully this brings a little happiness and Christmas cheer to everyone."
Now, the hospital charity is working on its annual fundraising appeal to give every patient in Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde hospitals a present on Christmas day. While many people usually donate gifts to the scheme, Blue Skies Hospitals is asking for £5 donations this year instead, which should help minimise the danger of spreading the virus. Head to the charity’s website to make a contribution.
