Christmas Tree Recycling Update 11-Jan-2016
A big thank to everyone who supported our great Christmas tree recycling collection event on Saturday 9th January 2016. The collection covered
over catchment area including Millom, Barrow, Broughton, Coniston etc. many volunteers braved the rain.
Zoe Guest, Head of Income Generation: “We had a great time and altogether this year we collected over 270 trees and early indications suggest that we have
raised over £2000! This is simply a fantastic effort by all the volunteers who assisted with the collection on the day or delivering leaflets, by all
the supporters who registered their trees and the businesses who provided support through the collection, publicity or recycling the trees. Well done
to everyone and a huge thank you. I am sure that the collection will be even bigger next year.”
Special thanks to Crooklands Garden Centre, Adam Brookes Tree Surgeon, Steeles and Deltathwaite.
Sarah Simpson, Marketing Coordinator: “This was a brilliant community effort, without everyone this wouldn't happen. We will update you on how the any
raised makes a difference, big thank you!”
Please check our website later this year for details for how you can register your tree for 2017!!! It’s never too early…
