Following the success of our Giving Tree initiative last year with over 700 gifts being donated, this year the trees have returned with the aim of providing even more gifts than before, to children and families who might not otherwise receive one, especially in the current cost of living crisis.
Customers who would like to donate a present can do so by taking a tag from the tree, buying a present for the age of child noted on the tag, and returning it to the centre. Presents need to be at centres before 15th December in order to reach children in time for Christmas. However, centres will continue to accept gifts following this date, without the guarantee of Christmas Day arrival.
This year, Britannia will continue working with Ivy Street Family Centre, who are based locally to Britannia. They have developed a relationship with the centre since the opening of their new building. They focus on supporting families by providing resources, clothing and play opportunities.
Ivy Street have made a wish list of presents they’re looking for, which you can find here: https://amzn.eu/4wcl6yS
If you have any questions feel free to speak to our staff in centre.
