Hassle-free Christmas tree recycling scheme is back

John Taylor Hospice is offering to collect and recycle real Christmas trees in the New Year in return for a donation to support its vital work.

In exchange for a suggested donation of £10, hospice volunteers will collect and recycle your tree from your home or business on Friday 8 or Saturday 9 January. This year’s scheme covers 15 postcode areas which are: B23, B24, B26, B33, B34, B35, B36, B42, B43, B44, B46, B72, B73, B76 and WS5.

Funds raised from the Christmas tree recycling scheme will help John Taylor Hospice provide specialist end of life care for people living with a terminal illness and their families – both at the hospice in Birmingham and in people’s own homes across the West Midlands.

Hospice Community and Events Fundraising Charlie Pette said: “Our recycling scheme makes disposing of your real tree very simple – just book your collection on our website, pop a tag on your tree and leave it outside before Friday 8 January. Our fantastic teams of volunteers will pick it up and recycle it for you, saving you time and hassle.

“This environmentally-friendly scheme will see hundreds of trees recycled and their chippings used at local schools and in gardens. Some will also be used for mulch and biomass fuel. Every tree we recycle and every donation we receive will help us provide much-needed care for local people and their families so we’re very grateful to everyone who gets behind our campaign.”

To book your collection visit www.johntaylorhospice.org.uk/tree or contact the John Taylor Hospice Fundraising Team on 0121 728 6739 or at fundraising@johntaylorhospice.org.uk

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
