CHESHIRE: Streets of Chester to be filled with FREE gifts for Mum
| 10th March 2020
The streets of Chester are to be filled with FREE gifts for Mums.
Sustainably wrapped, brown boxes and bags will appear in landmarks across the city on the week running up to Mother’s Day, and there’s some showstopping presents up for grabs!
High-street favourites and locally loved stores including Marks & Spencer, Debenhams, Penhaligons, The Violet Palm, Watergate Street Gallery and L’Occitane are all donating gifts with mothers in mind, from toiletries to trinkets and flowers to chocolates.
There’s also a pamper hamper worth over £130 filled with beauty products and artificial flowers from Marks & Spencer, as well as a hamper from homeware and craft favourite, Søstrene Grene.
Amongst the beautifully wrapped parcels will be several dining out gifts. These will include eating out vouchers for Afternoon Tea in The Tea Press at Debenhams, Bottomless Fizz lunch for 2 at Veeno and £40 to spend at pizzeria Dough Dough.
Larger gifts with high values will be gifted in voucher form to be retrieved in store. Other gifts of smaller values like flowers and chocolates will be given out to be taken straight home.
To find the prizes, you will need to follow clues on social media. Whether picked up by a child to surprise their mother (or carer) on Mother’s Day or picked up by mothers themselves, the message is clear – ‘Spoil Your Mum’ this Mother’s Day.
Emily Ghazarian, CH1ChesterBID, Marketing & Events Manager, said: “Mothering Sunday provides an opportunity for our BID members to say thank you to the mothers and caregivers who play a huge part in keeping homes and families running smoothly.
“We recognise that, now, more than ever before the pressure on families is enormous. It is so easy to stay at home and shop online, yet we continue to see parents and their families visit the city centre for retail, food and drink and leisure experiences – continuing to drive footfall and success for our city.
“Mothers, more perhaps than any other part of society, respect the power and gift of community and this is Chester’s way of giving back to them for their continued support to the high street.
“All our carefully wrapped packages and brown bags will be labelled with ‘Spoil Your Mum’ logo so children can spot them easily and are free to pick up and take home ready to treat your mothers.’
