This January we re really pleased to support Dorothy House Hospice Care and their biggest annual Christmas Tree Collection fundraiser which they are running in partnership with the Justhelping charity. We will be taking in all the donated xmas trees and providing the drop-off point for the vilunteer.
Local people can book their used Christmas tree in now for a charitable donation and Dorothy House supporters and volunteers will pick it up between 7th – 9th January 2022. Taking part is easy, visit www.charityxmastreecollection.com
type in your postcode to check that your area is covered, make a donation and list where your tree will be located.
Dorothy House asks for a donation to help fund their specialist palliative and end of life care services provided by the Hospice free of charge. All trees must be clearly marked with a label saying ‘Dorothy House’ and can be collected from businesses, schools, churches and offices. A percentage of trees will be chipped and shredded to make reusable materials for the community.
In January 2021 the Hospice’s Christmas Tree Collection raised in excess of £66,000. Dorothy House hopes to beat this sum in January 2022 as the Hospice has to raise £4 for every £1 it receives from the NHS to fund its care for local people living with a life-limiting illness, their families and carers.
