Want to be a Secret Santa this Christmas?

Buy a gift or donate so local charities can make Christmas special for those they support!

Each year we work with charities in Reading who ask the children and adults they support what they'd really like for Christmas. Then, then we give YOU the opportunity to give a gift you know the recipient will really love.

How to get involved

- Gift tags which have requests from the charities are available on Giving Trees in The Oracle shopping Centre near the information desk.

- You can choose a gift tag, buy a gift and then simply return the gift UNWRAPPED to the information desk at The Oracle by 15th December.

- The gifts are then sorted out ready for the charity partners to pick up and distribute to those they support.

OR, if you would like to donate online then funds will be used to buy gifts which go directly to a charity!

Connect Reading coordinate the campaign and distribute funds to charities so they can buy their gifts. All donations are very gratefully received.

This year, we are aiming to raise £15,000. This will enable over 1000 gifts to be bought by local charities.

We also have local businesses who have pledged to donate - if your business would like to get involved, get in touch.

Any funds received over our target amount will still be used for gifts and to help future Giving Tree projects and our Easter Egg Appeal. Your donations will allow us to make sure that no one misses out on the magic of The Giving Tree this Christmas.

Thank you. And, please do share this link with family, friends and colleagues so they can donate too.
