The Giving Tree 2020

The Giving Tree label hung on tree

Over 1,500 gifts bought for disadvantaged children and young people in Reading.

Over £5,500 raised by you online.

Over £5,600 donated by local businesses.

And over £4,400 underwritten by us at Connect Reading because we believe in the cause so much.

“The generosity of The Giving Tree gave us an opportunity to identify children, young people and families that most needed some additional help at Christmas and provide them with a Christmas present which some of them would not have received otherwise. The vouchers we gave were received very well and put a smile on many faces especially as they then got to chose what they really wanted with the voucher. Thank you Connect Reading for organising a superb scheme and for making it happen for many Reading children and young people.”

From Brighter Futures For Children (one of 14 charities who benefited from the campaign this year)

What a fantastic campaign! We can’t wait until next year when we can do physical gifts AND online donations.
