A JEWELLER will make a festive wish come true for Basingstoke’s most “bah humbug” person.

Beaverbrooks has launched the wishing tree after finding in a survey it ran that 46 per cent of people felt the magic of Christmas had gone, admitting they no longer look forward to the festive season.

Off the back of the findings, the family-owned jewellers wanted to restore Basingstoke’s faith in the festive season, by bringing the magic back to Christmas for one lucky resident.

Residents are being encouraged to submit their seasonal wishes online, with one deserving winner receiving £1,000 to help make their wish come true.

Anna Blackburn, chief executive officers of Beaverbrooks, said: “Christmas is our favourite time of year here at Beaverbrooks. It’s the one time of year where friends and family can all come together and share special, magical moments, so we were surprised to hear that the magic had gone for so many people.

“We wanted to try and bring back some seasonal cheer for those un-festive individuals, and what better way than with an enchanted Christmas tree that can make your wishes come true?”

“Whether it’s a big family get-together, a special trip with a loved one, or that dream watch or piece of jewellery you’ve had your eye on – we hope we can spread some seasonal joy to local people and make their Christmas magical.

“We can’t wait to hear what people in Basingstoke wish for.”

To be in with a chance of receiving £1,000, need to submit a Christmas wish online at beaverbrooks.co.uk/make-christmas-magical by Thursday, 7 December.
