Grafton Gifting Tree Returns To Spread Festive Joy

Can you help us get 10,000 gifts and toys to children and young people who might not otherwise receive anything this Christmas?

Star Radio is again teaming up with The Grafton to collect and distribute toys and gifts for children and young people between the ages of 1 and 17 throughout Cambridgeshire.
The Gifting Tree – now open and its 16th year – aims to ensure no child wakes up on Christmas Day morning without a present to open. Shoppers are invited to collect a tag containing the name and age of a child, buy a gift for them, then place it unwrapped into the collection box near The Great Court of The Grafton.

Please note: it’s very important that your kind gift is brand new and unwrapped when dropped off. For safety reasons, second-hand or used items cannot be accepted, thank you.
John O’Shea, Centre Manager at The Grafton, explained: “We’re asking the community to help bring a smile to local children’s faces this Christmas by donating a gift to help underprivileged children have the magical Christmas they deserve.”

John added “Over the past 16 years, the shoppers have donated hundreds of thousands of presents to deserving children in our community. There has never been a year where our community needs our support more than this year, and we are grateful for every present donated by our customers and local businesses.”

Josh Lovatt, Drivetime Presenter, Star Radio added “We’re pleased to be working with our friends at The Grafton to make the Gifting Tree an even bigger success in 2022. It’s never been a more important time to support activity like this – and every gift donated will really help spread some much-needed festive joy.”

We need gifts for children aged between 1 and 17 and the Star Radio elves with match your kindly-donated gift with a child of that age.

You have until Saturday 17th December to donate gifts and we'll make sure Santa knows where to deliver them in time for Christmas!
