The Gift of the giving tree Drake Circus

This year, Drake Circus has partnered with our four chosen charities –  MacmillianPlymouth MINDGables Cats and Dogs Home and Children’s Hospice South West – to create our spectacular Giving Tree installation.

Our charities have given us a list of goodies that will really help to spread the festive cheer to those in need this Christmas.

From blankets to toys, make-up to music, pick up a flyer from the Giving Tree, select an item from the gift ideas and take the flyer with you to one of our stores to make your purchase. Then, simply take your item and receipt to one of our drop-off locations and the Drake Circus Christmas elves will send it down the chimneys of our charities.

Plus, shop in selected stores and receive a discount on the gift you’re purchasing. Simply, present your flyer at the point of purchase to redeem the discount.
