Christmas time is a special time to give back to those who are less fortunate than ourselves. This year, the people of Peterborough have truly outdone themselves bringing joy and happiness to hundreds of disadvantaged children.
The Queensgate Giving Tree, in partnership with Barnardo’s Children’s Charity, has donated an incredible 1598 gifts, which were all given to children before Christmas.
Gifts from toys, clothes, crafts, sports equipment, games and treats were donated throughout December.
Mark Broadhead, the Centre Director at Queensgate, said: “I can’t thank our shoppers and donators enough for their generosity and kindness. I really hope they realised what a huge difference it makes to someone’s life around Christmas.”
Sherrie Bosett, Early Years & Community Development Team Manager; “The Queensgate Giving Tree has been an absolute godsend to us. Without it we would never have been able to fulfil the referrals made to us.
"Thank you to everyone who has supported us this year.”
