We are absolutely blown away by the generosity of the Hartlepool community. Since launch, over 13,000 presents have been bought by kind-hearted people from Hartlepool and across the country for children who may otherwise not receive a gift this year.
Middleton Grange Shopping Centre and In Studio have come together to make this year’s Giving Tree virtual and we thank both them, and you, for supporting the appeal.
This year’s chosen charities are ourselves and Harbour. Any presents we receive will go to our young carers, some of whom are as young as five, and who care for a loved one.
Harbour works with families and individuals who are affected by abuse from a partner, former partner or other family member. If you or someone you know is being abused or being abusive to others then use our website to learn about the help which is available. www.myharbour.org.uk

As well as the Giving Tree, we are also supporting the Hartlepool Borough Council ‘Hartlepool’s Wishlist’ initiative which is aiming to bring gifts to isolated adults in Hartlepool.
And of course, we are doing our usual collection for carers of all ages.
Thank you to everybody who has supported us this Christmas and throughout the year, particularly in these difficult times.
