The Giving Tree Buying Guide Top Tips:

Buying a gift for loved ones is never an easy task; however buying a gift for someone you don’t know can be even more challenging.

As we launched our Giving Tree initiative yesterday, we have decided to pull together a buying guide, which can assist you in deciding which gift/s you want to purchase and give to the child on your gift tag/

With many of the children who will receive gifts through the Giving Tree living in families who may struggle to afford Christmas dinner, we would greatly appreciate if our supporters could supply donations of vouchers which can be spent on food too. Vouchers for supermarkets are perfect for this.
