We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the Hartlepool community, and indeed the country, in supporting the Hartlepool Giving Tree's initiative and helping us raise over 11,000 gifts!

The giving tree ended on Thursday 16 December at midnight. This was to ensure we have enough time to donate all of the gifts over the coming days and each child receives their gift on Christmas Day. Our charity volunteers will be working tirelessly, and we are incredibly thankful.

This year we partnered with the Cash for Kids Mission Christmas Appeal. We continue to work with Harbour Support Services and the Hartlepool Carers.

Your generosity and kindness changed Christmas for many children this year.

On behalf of the team at Hartlepool Giving Tree, we wish you a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
