Just because you're self-employed, a contractor or freelancer, it doesn't mean obtaining a mortgage is harder than someone with a set salary. With the right amount of preparation and planning, the process can be easier than you think.
Join Wokingham's 2017 Giving Tree Appeal and help make it a happy Christmas for local children.
The appeal is now in its 15th year and is once again giving local people the chance to make a child smile this Christmas. Taking part is simple. Choose a tag from many of the trees across the town taking part, including our Wokingham branch, buy the gift on the tag and return it to the same tree (unwrapped).
Volunteers then ensure the presents are delivered to local charities, who make sure they go to children whose stockings might otherwise have been empty on Christmas morning. Last year, more than 2,500 tags were collected and hopes are high Wokingham folk will be even more generous this time around.
The local charities benefitting from this year's appeal include;
We hope you can join in with this year's appeal - gifts can be donated up until the 18th December.
