On Mindful Gifts CIC’s new year’s honours list is #walsallpublichealth for giving us a grant so that we could giveaway 500 skipping ropes to children who lived in Walsall. This enabled children to get healthy and fit by having fun!
Simon Bamford who played Butterball Cenobrite in Hellraiser loved his ‘This is My Life’ book. Simon was just one of the many actors who were filmed in our 1970s living room for the film ‘You are My Sunshine’. Not only were we able to transform our shop into a film set, we also loaned out vintage items that were ideal for the seventies film.
We, Mindful Gifts CIC, are looking forward to reopeing our unique shop in Darlaston, Walsall on 3 December 2020. As like many small independent shops we have been forced to close during lockdown. However, behind the scenes we have been busy getting our shop stocked with Christmas decorations and gifts , most at vastly reduced prices. We also have gifts for people with dementia including jigsaws, memory books and many more activities. So if you want to get some quirky and thoughtful gifts then please pay us a visit. We look forward to seeing you very soon! www.mindfulgifts.co.uk
