Southampton's Christmas Market is back this December and is raising funds for Naomi House & Jacksplace!
The popular market is hosted every year on Southampton's high street. However, in October, it was announced that the market sadly wouldn't return this year. Then S&D Leisure stepped in to bring the festivities back to Southampton! S&D Leisure are a family-based leisure and attraction organisation and event operator, running Christmas Markets all over the UK, including the Bournemouth Christmas Market. The company supports local charities with their events and chose Naomi House & Jacksplace to support through this year's Southampton Christmas market.
With a huge variety of stalls, there’s something for every festive shopper this year at the Southampton Christmas market. For Christmas gifts, there are stalls selling hats, gloves and scarfs, handmade clothing and personalised Christmas decorations, and for festive treats, there's a huge variety of food stalls, including sweet treats like freshly made brownies, crepes and hot chocolates, to more savoury food such as cheese, German sausages and roast dinner wraps
Suzy Wheeler from the Southampton Christmas market, said:
We're so happy to be able to hold the Christmas Market in Southampton this year and share the Christmas spirit with local festive shoppers. There's something for everyone, from festive shopping stalls, to delicious food like Yorkshire pudding wraps. And if you want a break from shopping you can jump on the Christmas Carousel!
The market will have Naomi House & Jacksplace collection pots scattered across the bar and food stalls for shoppers to leave donations.
Louise Gough, Community Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace said:
We’re so pleased to be Southampton Christmas Market’s chosen charity this year. They’ve done an incredible job to get everything ready in just three weeks and we can’t wait to go down and toast some marshmallows and share is their festivities.
If you’re popping down to enjoy the festivities this year, please do pop your spare change into our collection pots! Thank you and Merry Christmas!
