Are you SUPER excited about the magic of Christmas? Have you also been looking for a way to help someone in need, making their Christmas magical, too? Why head not head into town to get involved in Reading’s much-loved Giving Tree Campaign?

The Giving Tree is run by local charity, Connect Reading. They support other local charities by organising this awesome Reading Christmas campaign, The Giving Tree. Last year, 2,075 gifts were given to people in need across Reading. Over £8k worth of presents were collected at The Oracle, whilst local businesses also raised over £7k to give gifts to charities they were matched with. This year, it will be bigger than ever, with a funky Giving Tree Song (attend the launch with us at Reading Minster on 2nd December, sign up via our website!)

So, head on down to The Oracle now until 14th December to take a tag, and buy the very gift that someone in need chose! If you can’t get there, you can donate online via our website!
