The annual fundraising campaign offers a January Christmas tree collection and recycling service in return for a donation to the hospice.
This year over 300 people pre-booked their collections – together raising over £2,500 to support people living with a terminal illness and their families.
“We’re thrilled to have completed our second year of Christmas tree recycling,” said Community and Events Fundraising Manager Emily Boate. “As a charity we’re delighted to be able to offer such a valuable service to our community whilst also raising vital funds for hospice care. We’re already looking forward to growing our collection areas and numbers in 2020.
“Our weekend of collections would not have been possible without the support of our amazing volunteers who gave up their time to collect hundreds of trees so we really can’t thank them enough. Thank you also to everyone who booked their collections with us and made such generous donations.”
The Fundraising Team would welcome any feedback about the campaign and can be reached by phone on 0121 728 6739 or by email at [email protected]
