The Gift Giving Tree is back!

We are teaming up with York charity Snappy again over the festive period.  Shoppers are being asked to visit the Gift Giving Tree in Information Centre and collect a tag from the tree to donate a Christmas present.


Snappy is a registered charity working with children and young people of York with wide ranging disabilities, from learning difficulties to profound physical disabilities. The volunteers work to develop confidence, independence and social skills but mostly, to give the children and families the opportunity to enjoy new experience have fun and make friends.


Last year the presents donated by kind hearted shoppers made such a difference to the families SNAPPY works with and we are hope we can continue to make that difference this year too.


Join us at Monks Cross over the festive season and take part in our FREE events, taking place in the centre throughout December.

First York

First York will be at the centre with giveaways speaking to visitors of Monks Cross about their transport choices into the area and make them aware that they can catch the Park & Ride from the site at a lower cost than most city centre parking and take a stress free journey into York and back. We’re also promoting the fact that the bus runs into the centre late into the evening and circulates Monks Cross shops.
