Give a Gift 2022


2022 has been a hard year for many people. For some children in Thurrock, Christmas can be an even more uncertain time.

'Give a Gift' hopes to give gifts to hundreds of Thurrock children known to our Children's Services teams. These are children who might otherwise get few, if any, presents.

Give a Gift 2022 is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who generously donated a gift to put a smile on a child's face this Christmas.

How your donation helps

All the gifts you've donated will go to Thurrock children and young people in need. No gifts will be used for anything else.

Our Give a Gift volunteers will make sure all gifts are wrapped and delivered safely.

A special Thank You

You can download a special Give a Gift 'Thank You' star and hang it on your Christmas tree. There are 2 types – one you can print in colour, and one that your children can colour in at home.

Could you give the ultimate gift and foster a Thurrock child?

We are looking for new or experienced foster carers to give Thurrock children a safe and loving home – this would be the ultimate gift for any child. Go to our fostering information pages to find out about the great benefits of becoming a Thurrock Foster Carer. You can also phone or email our friendly team.
