Present wrapping, some love it, others loathe it. If you’re the latter, then Grand Central Birmingham has the perfect solution.

This weekend festive shoppers can take full advantage of a gift-boxing service at Grand Central Birmingham with donations helping to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Grand Central Birmingham is teaming up with professional gift-packaging suppliers BoxMart. For one weekend only, they will pack your presents in a variety of stylish gift boxes, taking some of the stress out of Christmas shopping, all whilst raising money for an incredible charity. There will be no set price; instead the team will be asking for donations for Teenage Cancer Trust. 

There will be no set price; instead the team will be asking for donations for Teenage Cancer Trust. So, not only can you breeze through all of your Christmas shopping from the luxury retailers at Grand Central Birmingham, opposite Kiehl’s and Cath Kidston the lovely team of Boxmart will be on-hand to make your gifts look luxurious from the outside too. 


Teenage Cancer Trust supports young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24 years of age. The charity has three of its 28 units located in Birmingham. The locations include: Queen Elizabeth Hospital Young Person Unit; Birmingham Children’s Hospital and the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital.

The team at BoxMart has close connections to Stephen Sutton, the inspirational teenager who created his now infamous ‘Bucket List’ after learning his cancer was incurable. Sadly, Stephen passed away in May 2014, having raised £3million for Teenage Cancer Trust. His fundraising total currently stands in excess of £5.6 million and the team at BoxMart is keen to support this amazing cause by offering its gift packaging and time. 

Jane Sutton, Stephen’s mum and Ambassador for Teenage Cancer Trust, who will also be joining the team to help with the boxing service said:

I’m thrilled Grand Central has chosen to partner with ‘Stephen’s Story’ and BoxMart for this event. All donations no matter how large or small will help to continue Stephen’s legacy and support Teenage Cancer Trust’s target of raising £80million by 2020.   

2016 will mark Grand Central’s second Christmas since opening its doors last September. If you’re looking for somewhere to get your gift buying done all in one place, late night shopping at Grand Central Birmingham is now taking place. Stores open from 9am-10pm on weeknights, 9am-8pm on Saturdays and 11am-5pm on Sundays.
