The Giving Tree is Connect Reading’s annual Christmas Campaign and is a chance to spread some Christmas kindness. This year, the University and RUSU have decided to get involved!
How does it work?
The University and RUSU have been matched with Launchpad and NHS Royal Berkshire Hospital and are pledging to donate gifts to those supported by the charities.
From Monday 28th November to Wednesday 14th December you can pick up a gift tag from the Christmas tree in the Library Foyer. Purchase the specified gift on the tag (shop local where possible!) and return the unwrapped gift with tag to the Welcome Desk at the RUSU Reception.
Any staff member, student, alumni or member of the local community is able to get involved and donate a gift.
Cost of living is effecting all of us at the moment so the requested gifts are no more than the value of approximately £15, hopefully making the Giving Tree as affordable as possible. Instead of a team secret santa this year, why not take part in the Giving Tree?
It’s absolutely fine if that’s not possible for you right now, sharing this message and spreading the word is just as important.
The University and RUSU have pledged to donate fifty gifts this year, let’s see if we can smash this target!
