We recently updated you on the wonderful work of our on site training provider Three13 and the amazing work that they do in battling unemployment across Teesside. Well we have a really amazing way that you can now support the work of Three13…

…Buy a Christmas Tree!!

Yes, you did hear right. Buy a tree – transform a life.

Last year, our lovely Three13 learners created some amazing wooden snowmen, wooden trees and wooden Rudolf’s as part of their carpentry pathway. We popped them on sale and people went wild for these high quality products. The money from the sales was then reinvested to further the work of Three13.

This year, we have a vision to go bigger. Alongside the wonderful hand crafted creations, we want to invite you to buy your Christmas tree from us.

Pop down to the Oakwood Gardens (which can be found in the back corner of the Oakwood Centre car park) to buy your tree! You will be greeted by our cheery team, who will help you to choose the perfect tree for you, get it netted up and on your car and send you on your way with a free hot chocolate or tasty treat and of course a big smile.

Opening Times:

Our Christmas shop opens on Friday 26th November at 3pm

From then onwards, it will be open:

Monday to Friday9am till 5pm (Call at The Oakwood Centre Reception)
Friday Evening5pm until 7pm
Saturday 10am until 3pm
Sunday 12.30pm until 3pm

If you are popping by during working hours, call at the Oakwood Centre Reception and one of our staff will pop over to the Gardens with you to serve you there. If you are coming after 5pm on a Friday or throughout the weekend, we will be ready to greet you over at The Oakwood Gardens.

Trees cost between £30 and £45 depending on size. We do have card facilities available so that you don’t need to be scrambling for cash!

So tell your friends that we are here. This is much more than a tree – it is about transforming lives all year round.
