Bluewater Giving Tree
If you’re shopping at Bluewater, you can donate a gift at their Giving Tree. Last year, every child at our Christmas party received a gift donated from the tree – and they were very well received! Smiles all round!
Presents can be donated up until Sunday 23rd December – the tree is on the Upper Mall, outside M&S.

Here’s what you have to do:

🎄 Head to the Giving Tree on the Upper Mall, outside M&S
🎄 Choose a boy’s or girl’s name tag, which will also show an age
🎄 Have fun selecting an appropriate gift from Bluewater for the child you have selected
🎄 Deposit the unwrapped gift into the Drop Box at the Giving Tree
🎄 Take a picture and share with your friends to help us to support local charities
🎄 Enjoy the warm feeling from making a child’s Christmas special
