Volunteers in Mid-Cheshire and on The Wirral are raising vital funds for St Luke’s Hospice, St John’s Hospice and Hospice of the Good Shepherd by volunteering to collect used Christmas trees.
Colleagues from our Wirral and Mid-Cheshire depots have volunteered to collect trees from around the community for a small fee of up to £10, which will be donated to each hospice to provide specialist end of life care and support for patients and their loved ones.
The Christmas tree collection scheme will run in January, simply sign up online here: https://charityxmastreecollection.com/xmas-trees/. Once registered, a tree can be left in an accessible spot outside where it will be collected.
The used trees are taken to various drop sites for the wood to be recycled or used for chipping.
Stephen Stewart, director at SP Energy Networks, said: “We’re proud to support these charities in raising funds through the Christmas tree collection scheme.
“We are committed to the communities we serve and our teams want to ensure that the inspiring staff at each of the hospices can continue to deliver their vital work for patients and their families. We want as many people as possible to get their used Christmas tree collected by our team and to dig deep with their donations to support each hospice and their incredible work.”
