Giving Trees

Tis The Season for Giving

Following the success of the campaign last year, we are delighted to launch our Giving Tree campaign in partnership with local charity, Start Up Stirling for the second year between 22nd November and 24th December.

The charity supports local people in the Stirlingshire area going through financial difficulty, poverty or crisis.

We welcome shoppers to visit one of four festive Giving Trees, where they can find tags that detail a gift recommendation which they can purchase from a variety of stores here at Thistles. Once shoppers make their desired purchase, shoppers are encouraged to drop it off at the Information Desk who will then pass it on to Start Up Stirling for them to provide the gifts to those in need. Gifts range from toiletries to bedding and all support is greatly appreciated.

The four trees are located in the Kings Square area of the centre (located between Next and Boots).

How to give back this Christmas:

  1. Select a tag from one of our giving trees
  2. Purchase the selected item within Thistles
  3. Drop off the chosen gift* (unwrapped) at the Information Desk along with the tag.

(*Please note all gifts must be in their original packaging)

We look forward spreading some good will this season supporting Start Up Stirling, in recognition for all the hard work they do throughout the year.
