Hospice’s popular Christmas tree recycling service will return in 2024
Leave the effort of getting rid of your Christmas tree to St Nicholas Hospice Care and not only will you save yourself the hassle of dealing with the post-holiday clutter, you’ll also be contributing to a worthy cause.
In a break from their regular daily business, the charity’s House Clearance Team will be back on the road in 2024 with their popular Christmas tree recycling service.
Instead of focusing on house clearances in the New Year, the team will be out collecting festive firs from January 8 to January 16, 2024, in the IP14, IP24, IP27, IP28, IP29, IP30, IP31, IP32, IP33, CO10, CB8 and CB9 postcode areas.
Darren Devine, the hospice’s house clearance and retail support manager, said: “Last year, we had a great response to the service, and we collected around 1,500 trees and raised an amazing £10,112 for the hospice.
“It truly was a great way to start 2023, and we’re hoping we can start 2024 in the same way by raising much-needed funds to help support the care and services we provide across the local area.
“Bookings are now open, so tick something off your to-do list and get your collection booked and have St Nic’s pickup and recycle your Christmas tree for a small donation that helps us support others.”
There is a suggested £5 donation for the service, and if you are interested, you can book your tree pick-up online at www.stnicholashospice.org.uk/news-community/events-listing/christmas-tree-recycling. Alternatively, you can call 01284 747622.
You must reserve your pick-up before midday on Wednesday, 3 January, and all trees must be left outside of your property decoration-free. Please put your tree out three days before collection if possible, if it is safe to do so. The hospice will advise you of a collection date.
This year, the service will be supported by TCL Landscapes and Grange Farm Christmas Trees, who will be supporting the initiative by recycling trees for St Nic’s free of charge.
If you’d like to use this service, please don’t delay; we may need to close bookings early if we reach capacity.
