Springfields in Spalding welcomes back 'gifting tree'
The Gifting Tree is back at Springfields Outlet in Spalding again this year from now until Sunday, December 15.
This hugely popular initiative is a great way to give back this Christmas.
Springfields is collecting toys and gifts, not only for children, but also for vulnerable adults in the local area who might not otherwise receive a Christmas present.
The tree can be found within M&S Outlet. Take a tag from the tree, which will have a name and an age on it.
Gifts are then collected unwrapped with the tag attached to be taken by local groups, charities, schools and hospitals to reach their recipient.
Retail director of Springfields Outlet Simon Stone said: “We’re proud to run this wonderful campaign to provide toys and gifts to local causes and every year we are overwhelmed by our customers’ generosity.This year, we would like to extend the campaign to give gifts to vulnerable adults and older people as well as children.”
Last year, a record number of gifts was donated at Springfields, with 4,702 presents given to local causes including Anna’s Hope – the leading children’s brain tumour charity in the East or England, Teenage Cancer Trust and Barnardo’s Services.
This year, they will be collecting gifts and toys for: Holbeach Hospital, Capricorn Day Centre Holbeach, Framework Spalding, Lighthouse Project, Agape Foodbank, Garth and Priory School, MencapSpalding, St Paul’s Ward Spalding, Little Miracles Peterborough, Alzheimers Society and Callum Pite’s Smile Charity.
