  2. Buy the gift selected from one of our recommended retailers or one of your choice.
  3. Make sure to use the shipping address provided for delivery or drop at Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, TS24 7RZ in the unit situated next to Iceland on the first floor.
  4. Receive a confirmation email from us, this is your promise to donate a gift to Hartlepool Giving Tree.

You can pick a tag, buy your gift and drop your gift all under one roof.

We’ll have tags for all ages and suitable for all budgets just like the online Hartlepool Giving Tree.

Apply as a Charity

We would like as many local charities as possible to benefit from the generous donations made to the Hartlepool Giving Tree.

In order to receive gifts from the Hartlepool Giving Tree, charities need to apply through Mission Christmas, Cash for Kids. Charities can apply here to be a beneficiary of the Hartlepool Giving Tree.

Please note that applications can only come from members of authority for example, teachers, social workers, doctors etc. or from other charities and organisations. As part of the application you are confirming that they you are applying on behalf of children who are living in poverty / are at risk of going without at Christmas.
