Free Gift Wrapping Day – Allan Drew Funerals
December 5, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This year, Allan Drew Funerals will be holding a special free gift wrapping and card stamping day on Tuesday 17th December from 10am until 2pm. Staff will be on-hand to wrap your special Christmas gifts and place stamps on cards to your friends and family whilst you enjoy a cup of tea, all you need to do is bring them to the Allan Funerals function room at 221 Old Northern Road, Castle Hill.
Understanding that Christmas can be a hectic time for many, and to help avoid the mad panic wrapping on Christmas Eve, Allan Drew Funerals wanted to extend a helping hand to their community.
“While we usually help families in some of their hardest times, we’re also here to share in celebrations and festivities. We want to save our community time by and stress in the pre-Christmas rush and create a space where they can come together and connect,” says Mr Allan Drew OAM.
For several days in December, there will also be a dedicated Memorial Christmas tree that will stand in the Allan Drew chapel, where visitors are invited take a complimentary customisable decorative tag and place it on the tree in memory of a loved one during the locations opening hours between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
“Christmas can be a hard time for families who are facing the festive season without someone they love, which is why we are creating a space to help them take a moment for reflection and create a personal message to their friend and family members. We hope that this, along with our present wrapping session will help bring the community together to share in the joy of Christmas,” Allan concludes.
