Are you having a real Christmas Tree this year? Do you live or work within theCA1, CA2, CA3, CA4 8, CA5 6, CA5 7, CA6 4, CA6 5, CA7 9, CA8 1, or CA8 9 postcode areas?
Hospice at Home is once again organising a festive fundraising initiative that not only recycles trees after the festive season but also raises vital funds to provide local hospice care in the community.
The process is simple. Supporters book their tree collection via the event website - www.charityxmastreecollection.com - and make a donation of their choice to Hospice at Home.
On Wednesday 8 January 2020 the charity team and volunteers will collect the trees and take them to be recycled locally. No trips to the tip or needles in your car - just leave the trees in your front garden and Hospice at Home will do the rest.
Last year, with the help of local businesses and volunteers, the Charity collected almost 900 trees, raising over £8,000. The areas in which the charity is collecting trees now covers Penrith, Carlisle, Keswick, Wigton, Longtown, Brampton and Dalston - a significant proportion of the area in which Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland’s clinical services operate.
