The Giving tree has now launched in the mall ( next to the information desk )
The Giving Tree Appeal provides Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children and young people in the local community. The children that the project supports ranges from babies up to teenagers who are living in care. Some children particularly those in refuges also ask for gifts that they can give to their mums. We are working with 13 project partners this year covering Greater Reading and parts of Berkshire. The gifts are usually within the range of £15-£25 and must be new and unused. Gift requests must either be for a specific item or the gender and age of the child are written and the donor has creative licence to buy something appropriate.
To take part, simply pick a gift request from our tree and return it UNWRAPPED before the deadline date which is 14 December this year. The gifts are then sorted out ready for the 13 charity partners to pick them up and distribute them to the children.
