  • Christmas-mad Scouse Mum Shirley Mcalle has helped families squirrel away tens of thousands for this year’s festivities.

  • Shirley has been dubbed Liverpool’s ‘Mrs Christmas’ and starts saving in January.

A Mum from Wavertree has been dubbed Liverpool’s very own ‘Mrs Christmas’ after helping local families save a staggering £32,390 ahead of this year’s festivities.


Christmas-mad Shirley McCalle, 62, started saving all the way back in January and enjoys having over 30 people at her house to celebrate Christmas.


That takes some planning, but Shirley is such a savvy saver that she not only squirrels cash away for her own family - she’s also taken on the responsibility of helping friends and others in her community.


This year, the proud Scouse Mum has helped around 30 families save a whopping £32,390 with Park Christmas Savings, with every penny going on Christmas presents, decorations and food.

'Christmas is all about family for me. It’s a stressful time for everyone but I love having my family round the table.' - Shirley McCalle.

Park Christmas Savings – part of the PayPoint Group PLC – is the UK’s biggest Christmas savings club, helping over 350,000 families manage the cost of Christmas since 1967.


Through their early bird approach to saving, Park Christmas Savings helps customers make their Christmas more affordable by offering a huge range of gift cards and vouchers from some of the biggest high street names.


Shirely, said: 'Christmas is all about family for me. It’s a stressful time for everyone but I love having my family round the table.'


She added: 'That’s why I love getting ahead with saving nice and early, Christmas would be a lot harder for me, my friends and family without Park Christmas Savings.'


Shirley has achieved this incredible financial feat as a Park Christmas Savings’ Agent. The families she helps all put money aside with the Christmas savings club and Shirley encourages them to set realistic savings targets and supports them through the year.


Whether they need to increase or reduce their payments and targets because of changes in their personal circumstances, Shirley is there to support, advise and ultimately ensure all her customers reach their goals and enjoy the Christmas they deserve.


Shirely added: 'The best thing about being a Park agent is the satisfaction I get out of it, I enjoy helping people. When the vouchers come, I’m texting them all to let them know and everyone’s really excited.'

'It’s the best time of the year, getting to see all the family I don’t get to see'. - Shirley McCalle.

Christmas-obsessed Shirley said her favourite festive film is the first Home Alone and, while she loves giving great gifts, she is also hoping her presents this year are slightly better than last Christmas.


Shirely said: 'Last year my family did a secret Santa and my brother forgot about my present and pinched me a pair of socks from his draw. He definitely won’t be doing that again this year!'


But her favourite thing about the season is spending time with her extended family, with over 30 people making the trip to Wavertree to enjoy Christmas turkey together at Shirley’s.


She added: 'It’s the best time of the year, getting to see all the family I don’t get to see, as long as I don’t have to do the washing up!'


Christmas is a busy time for everyone, but especially Shirley. Her son’s birthday is on the 15th of December, so she needs an extra financial boost around the festive period.


She said: 'It’s so close to Christmas so I’ve always known that around Christmas time, I needed to be financially secure. With Park Christmas Savings, I have Christmas and my son’s birthday sorted and I do not need to worry one bit.'


Shirley’s drive to help people save comes from personal experience after she found herself financially struggling one Christmas with a son desperate for lots of presents.


She said: 'That was the start for me. I wanted to give him the best birthday and Christmas I could. I began saving with Park Christmas Savings 20 years ago and every Christmas since has been financially stress-free.'


She added: Me and my friends have all the vouchers by mid-October which means we can sort out our presents before December so Christmas is a lot less stressful!'
