THE GIVING TREE
Each year the Giving Tree appeal looks to support families across Coventry who are in real need by providing their children with gifts and toys. This year we were able to support 660 children from 202 families.
Churches, groups and individuals give toys to the project which then needed to be sorted into age and sex before being wrapped ready for each child. We were thrilled that local secondary school, Grace Academy gave us full use of a large room in the school to run the sorting and wrapping from.
Once everything was wrapped the bags of presents were returned to the mission for two days of distribution where the families visit us at the centre at get involved in various activities before leaving with their gifts.
Thanks again to all those involved in supporting the Giving Tree. You made a huge difference to many children's experience of Christmas in 2011.
