TOWN CENTRE: Staff at the Brunel Centre are giving a boost to Christmas Care with a pop-up shop. The shop will open in the centre on Saturday and Sunday and Christmas Care will receive the entire takings for the two days of trading. Members of The Brunel’s management team, who are giving up their free time to support the charity, will staff it.

Current and former retailers from the shopping centre have donated various items for sale, which will be available for knockdown prices. The shop will open from 10am until 5pm on Saturday and 10.30am until 4.30pm on Sunday on the ground floor of the Brunel PLaza, near to Boots.
