We were very honoured to be invited to be part of Bluewater Shopping Centre's The Giving Tree project this year. The annual project invites shoppers to donate a Christmas gift for a child or young person as they are doing their festive shopping. The Giving Tree supports a range of charities in the Kent and Sussex region. 
We were absolutely blown away to discover that the very kind shoppers of Bluewater had donated over 100 gifts to the children and young people supported by Aspens.
We'd like to say an enormous thank you to each and every person and family who donated a gift, it means so much and has really helped to boost spirits after a very tough year. We are so grateful for the kindness and generosity of these shoppers.
We managed to collect the gifts just before we went into Tier 4 on Saturday and we hope to get them delivered before Christmas, restrictions allowing.
