Our ever-popular Basingstoke Giving Tree campaign is underway again, and this year we hope to make it as successful as in previous years to make many local children’s Christmas wishes come true.
From Friday 12 November until Friday 17 December 2021 we are asking our members and friends to purchase an extra present and leave it under the Christmas tree in our Basingstoke branch.
We will wrap the presents and they will be distributed to local families by Home Start North West Hampshire in time to be opened on Christmas morning.
Home-Start North West Hampshire is a charity is based in Basingstoke and operates within the Borough of Basingstoke and Deane. The charity works with local young families in need of emotional and practical support. With recent cuts to their funding, any support or fundraising they can generate is vital to continue provision of this service.
Lisa Wedge, Branch Manager of our Basingstoke branch, said: “We are delighted once again to be able to support Home Start through our Giving Tree appeal – which through the generosity of our members and friends has helped many local families have a very merry Christmases in recent years.”
HOW TO DONATE
If you would like to make a gift donation, simply purchase a gift relevant to a baby or child aged under 16 and bring it to our branch in Festival Place, Basingstoke before Friday 17 December. We really appreciate any donations you can manage.
