Churchill Square Giving Trees

The ever-popular Giving Tree campaign is back at Churchill Square shopping centre in Brighton this December, and we are delighted to announce that Rockinghorse has been chosen as the beneficiary charity.

Now in its seventh year, the festive campaign will see special tags being hung from three Christmas trees located throughout the shopping centre – with kind-hearted shoppers encouraged to take one and purchase a gift for a local child.

Churchill Square Centre Director, Mark Buchanan-Smith, said he was delighted to partner with Rockinghorse for a second successive year. He said: “Now in its 50th year, the charity has been providing vital care and support for sick children across the city and even further afield. I’m thrilled that we’ll once again be partnering with the charity to help give local children the Christmas they deserve.”

In a change from previous years, tags will be located on three Christmas trees across Churchill Square, giving shoppers even more opportunities to take part. “Year after year our customers always make the Giving Tree campaign a huge success. We’re expecting that to be the case again this year,” added Mark.

Those visiting the shopping centre and wishing to take part in the campaign should take a tag hanging from any one of the three trees and purchase the recommended gift. They can then take the gift to the customer services desk, unwrapped and with the tag on, any day up until Christmas Eve.

Analiese Doctrove, Head of Fundraising at Rockinghorse, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as the beneficiary charity of the Churchill Square Giving Tree this December. All presents donated will be going to children who will be at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital this Christmas. We would like to thank all of the Churchill Square stores and customers for their support.”

The Giving Trees can be found in the Lower, East and West malls in Churchill Square from Friday 1 December until the end of the day on Sunday 24 December. Tags can be taken from 12pm on Friday 1 December and gifts should be left with customer services, unwrapped on any day until Christmas Eve.
