Samaritans Giving Trees

This Christmas you can give the gift of joy to a local child in need by donating a toy to Samaritans Giving Tree.

Local businesses set up Christmas Trees in the lead up to Christmas where people can leave donated Christmas presents. These gifts then go to Samaritans Christmas Assistance where families, who cannot afford to purchase Christmas presents for their children, are invited to visit and select free toys.

Perhaps this year you might like to consider donating a gift to child in need? We ask that you please leave gifts unwrapped.

Giving Trees are located at:

Newcastle Cathedral
Parish of Wallsend
Church of the Good Shepherd

Donations can also be dropped directly to Samaritans Head Office – 36 Warabrook Blvd, Warabrook or 32 Brunker rd Broadmeadow.

While many people enjoy giving the traditional soft fluffy toy at Christmas time, the desperate need is for all types of gifts for all ages!
