St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice Adds Extra Date To Christmas Tree Recycling Initiative

Due to unprecedented demand, St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice has added an extra date, Saturday 11 January, to its incredible Christmas tree recycling scheme.

St Lukes Trees1Households throughout the Hospice catchment area saved time and money at the weekend by disposing of their Christmas trees through the Just-helping charity and St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice.

As slots booked up fast, the Winsford-based hospice has now extended the scheme to include Saturday 11 January, helping residents dispose of their real Christmas trees.

St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice will be offering to collect real Christmas trees from homes in CW1, CW2, CW4, CW5, CW6, CW7, CW8, CW9, CW10, CW11 and SY14

The hospice’s head of event management, Jane Thompson, said:
“The Christmas tree recycling scheme has become extremely popular over the years and this year slots became booked up in record time.
“We have decided to add an extra date for those who missed out at the weekend and those who have yet to dispose of their trees.
“To get your Christmas tree collected just log onto the JustHelping site and type in your postcode find out if we are collecting in your area.
“The minimum donation is just £5.00. 80% of this comes directly to the hospice and the remaining 20% goes to other local charities chosen by the organisations that help with the collection”.

This includes Middlewich and Northwich Round Table, Tarporley Rotary and the Crosses Rotary group of Sandbach.

Residents that would like to save themselves the time and money, not to mention the mess, of taking their tree to the tip can now book in to have their tree collected and donate at the same time. It is quite simple. Go to www.charityxmastreecollection.com

The minimum donation is £5 per tree and the team of volunteers will collect your tree on Saturday 11 January.

Booking is open now so book in early so the team can map out the routes and immobilise the right number of volunteers.
