Record number of gifts donated at Springfields Outlet, Spalding
An initiative by Springfields Outlet in conjunction with Heart FM has seen an extraordinary 4,702 gifts being donated to this year’s ‘Giving Tree’, based within the M&S Outlet at the centre.
The Heart FM ‘Giving Tree’ makes the Christmas season special by helping to ensure that as many children and young people as possible have a present to open on Christmas Day. Springfields shoppers are encouraged to choose a tag from the Giving Tree, with a child’s name and age. Then buy a gift for that child and leave it in a box next to the Giving Tree.
The Christmas gifts donated are passed to children and young people through a variety of charities, including Anna’s Hope – the leading children’s brain tumour charity in the East or England, Teenage Cancer Trust and Barnardo’s Services.
