Christmas Wish Tree 2020
Would you like to help someone in need this Christmas? Help us support two local charities by donating to our Christmas Wish Tree campaign.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our Christmas Wish Tree will be a little different this year but will still provide much-needed support to two local charities, especially during these uncertain times.
Staff and students are invited to donate an amount of their choice to one or both charities, which will help them to provide items from their wish list.
This year’s charities were chosen by representatives from Durham Students’ Union:
Children North East, who work with children and young people in their families, schools and communities to ensure they grow up to be healthy and happy.
REfUSE is a community café in Chester-le-Street, who intercept food before it becomes waste and use it to make food to serve in their community cafe.
For more information and how to donate, visit our Christmas Wish Tree webpages.
