The event was described as ‘the highlight of the Midsummer Place Christmas campaign’.The event offered 20 local organisations the chance to sponsor their own Christmas tree in return for free mall space throughout the busiest time of the year plus marketing and social support, and help a charity of their choice. A vote was cast for the three best-dressed trees, with the prize being a share of a £2,800 fundraising pot.

Its success has inspired calls for organisations to get involved once again ahead of Christmas 2023.

General manager Shelley Peppard said: “I am so proud of our team here at Midsummer Place. They all worked incredibly hard to make this event happen and it was so important to all of us that we celebrate our local businesses and charities so to receive an award like this is truly an honour. We can’t wait to start again for the 2023 Christmas Tree Festival!”
