Recycle Your Christmas Tree to Help Your Local Hospice

07-Jan-2015

Recycle your Christmas Tree to help your local hospice St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston has teamed up with Just Helping and Crooklands of Dalton to save people across South Cumbria the hassle of disposing of this year’s Christmas trees.

As part of a scheme to raise money for the Ulverston charity, for a suggested minimum donation of just £5, volunteers will collect Christmas trees from homes over the weekend of the 10th and 11th of January. Last year, the Christmas Tree recycling scheme raised £1,500 for St Mary’s Hospice with around 120 trees being collected by a team of volunteers and recycled at Crooklands of Dalton.

To arrange to have a Christmas tree collected by the team, just register online at www.charityxmastreecollection.com or call St Mary’s Hospice on 01229 580305. The collection is part of a national campaign organised by Just Helping in conjunction with local Hospices around the country.

The 2014 campaign raised more than £16,000 for good causes. Zoe Guest, Head of Income Generation at St Mary’s Hospice, said: “Instead of having your tree lie in the garden for weeks or mess up your car, why not let us take all the hassle out of getting rid of it for you this year? Just a small donation can make a big difference to us and we’ve got some amazing volunteers ready and willing to travel around the local area collecting as many trees as possible. “As we saw in 2014, this is a great scheme and a win-win for both the Hospice and the customer – not to mention the environmental benefits of having your tree properly recycled.”
