Last year over 10,000 gifts were distributed to children and young people in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire through the Giving Tree to families unable to buy Christmas presents for their children. Due to the devastating effect of Covid-19 it is anticipated that this year there will be a greater need in the area.
Ferryhill Parish Church is supporting the 30th annual Giving Tree present appeal and gift tags will be available for selection on Wednesdays when the Church is open for Instant Neighbour food donations between 1-2pm and 7-8pm. Gifts should be purchased and then returned to the church on any Wednesday during the above times before Friday 4 December.
Further information can be found at http://www.instantneighbour.co.uk/giving-tree-appeal including gift suggestions. Gifts should not be wrapped but can be placed in a gift bag. All gifts must be new and have their gift tag securely attached so that the age and gender or specific child they are for is clearly identifiable.
