The Oracle

The Giving Tree Appeal


Are you SUPER excited about the magic of Christmas? Have you also been looking for a way to help someone in need, making their Christmas magical, too? Why not head into town to get involved in Reading's much-loved Giving Tree Campaign?

At The Oracle The Giving Tree Appeal launches on Monday 14th November and runs until Wednesday 14th December.

The Giving Tree is run by local charity, Connect Reading. They support other local charities by organising this awesome Reading Christmas campaign, The Giving Tree. Last year, 2,075 gifts were given to people in need across Reading. Over £8k worth of presents were collected at The Oracle, whilst local businesses also raised over £7k to give gifts to charities they were matched with. This year, it will be bigger than ever, with a funky Giving Tree Song (watch this space, and TikTok!) being released at the start of December.

How to get involved

Simply head to the Customer Service Desk on Level 1 to pick up a tag from the Giving Tree. Then pop back and bring an unwrapped gift and the tag to the Customer Service Desk, on level 1 and we’ll make sure it reaches a local child, adult or family in need of a little joy this Christmas or you can donate online here

Thank you so much.

* Please note that we are unable to accept second hand or food gifts.
