The Giving Tree is back at Springfields for 2018 and this year is in M&S Outlet. The Giving Tree will be with us from November 10th to December 20th so if you are thinking about donating a gift please make sure you get here between those two dates.
3168 gifts were donated in 2017 which is just incredible!!
During the time the tree was at Springfields the Heart Angel team retagged, collected and distributed the gifts over 20 times across the duration of the campaign.
The main beneficiaries from The Giving Tree were: Cambridge Woman’s Aid, Cross Keys Homes, Cambridgeshire County Council Social Services (lots of departments), Centre 33, Anna’s Hope, Teenage Cancer Trust, Peterborough Woman’s Aid, Blue Smile, Peterborough IDVAS (Independent Domestic Violence Advisory) Service, CPFT (Cambridge & Peterborough Foundation Trust) and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice.
We are in awe every year at the generosity of our customers and last year was no exception. Having met and developed relationships with many of the charities and organisations who benefit from this campaign, we can assure you that these gifts really do change a child’s life, giving them a reason to smile when life hasn’t given them many other reasons too thus far.
Springfields Chosen Charity of the Year for 2018
In a medical emergency, every minute counts in getting that vital first medical support to the patient as quickly as possible. Those first golden minutes can make all the difference to a patient’s life.
That’s why the 700+ volunteers for Lives give up their spare time to respond to 999 medical emergencies, in their communities, right across greater Lincolnshire. Their responders’ actions save lives; they get there fast to deliver that vital immediate care to their neighbours in those critical first moments before handing over to the ambulance service.
They believe in being there for the people of Lincolnshire in time of greatest need; delivering immediate high quality care regardless of the location or time of day. Their responders were there for 21,550 people last year across the county, that’s 60 people a day.
