Turn your Christmas tree into cash for local hospices

East Cheshire Hospice and St Luke's will collect trees in January

Once again, teams of volunteers working for East Cheshire Hospice and St Luke’s Hospice will be collecting Christmas trees in January to help raise funds for both charities.

St Luke’s Hospice collections will take place on 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th January 2018.

East Cheshire  Hospice collections will take place on 13th and 14th January 2018.

The charities are reminding supporters that this is the most environmentally friendly and hassle free way to dispose of your tree, last year helping to raise tens of thousands of pounds in donations.

St Luke’s Hospice will be working with a volunteers representing a number of local organisations, and will be covering the majority of ‘CW’ postcodes.

East Cheshire Hospice volunteers will be collecting from postcode areas beginning: CW12, SK9, SK10, SK11, SK12 and WA16.

Jane Thompson, head of event management at St Luke’s Hospice, said: “Our Christmas Tree Collection Service is one of our biggest annual sources of income.

“Last year it raised a staggering £25,000 for the hospice and other small local charities. We would love to beat that amount this year.”

Already, over 500 trees have been registered.

This year, East Cheshire Hospice has taken the coordination of its Christmas Tree collection in-house due to the enormous scale of the operation.

The incredibly successful annual event has been supporting the hospice for 18 years and last year brought in more than £114,000 whilst responsibly recycling over 7,000 trees.

New for this year, supporters can donate online when registering their tree for collection.

Here's how to support your local hospice when recycling your tree...
