The Giving Tree 2022

News from Connect Reading

Are you 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 £8,000 worth of presents were collected at The Oracle, whilst local businesses also raised over £7,000 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 2 December, sign up via our website!)

So, head on down to The Oracle now until 14 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 at
