Make a difference this year and visit the Giving Tree on The Lower Mall next to the Customer Service desk and help ensure that children across Reading receive at least one gift this year!
Presents must be returned to the Customer Service Desk (unwrapped) by the 15th December.
What is The Giving Tree?
The Giving Tree provides Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children and young people in the local Reading community, and this ranges from babies up to teenagers who are living in care. Some children, particularly those in refuges, sometimes ask for gifts that they can give to their mums rather than something for themselves.
We work with our partners to find out what they would really like for Christmas, and you choose the gift tag for the child you would like to buy for - the tags specify a specific item asked for by a child, or simply provide the gender and age of the child and you can choose to buy something you think is apropriate.
The gifts are usually within the range of £15-£25, and must be new and unused.
