The Wishing Tree At The Harpur Centre

Published on 27 November 2015

Donate a gift at the Wishing Tree and give a child in Bedfordshire a better Christmas this year!

Tis the season to start shopping! Whether it's for Christmas presents or for the perfect party outfit, Bedford has everything you need for a shopping spree. 

The Wishing Tree is back at the Harpur shopping centre now and right up to Sunday 20th December, giving children across Bedfordshire a better Christmas. 

So while you're choosing presents for your family why not add an extra gift to your basket to pop under the tree to make a child's day extra special?

All the gifts collected will be distributed by organisations that support underprivileged children and families in Bedfordshire and delivered in time for Christmas Day.


How does it work? 

1. Head to the Wishing Tree in Harpur Centre located by The Spiral

2. Choose one of the 100's of the 'Boy' or 'Girl' tags

3. Have fun selecting an appropriate gift from local stores

4. Attach the tag to your unwrapped gift

5. Drop the gift back at the tree by Sunday 20th December

6. Enjoy the warm feeling from making a child's Christmas more special!
