Hospice offer Christmas tree recycling service in Holmes Chapel and Goostrey
7:00am Monday 23rd December 2013 in News
Households in Goostrey and Holmes Chapel are being invited to save time and money this month by disposing of their Christmas trees through the Just-helping charity and St Luke’s Hospice.
For three years, St Luke’s Hospice has collected and chipped Christmas trees after the twelfth night, in return for a donation to the hospice, as part of its tree recycling scheme.
This year the Winsford-based hospice will be offering to collect real Christmas trees on January 4 and 5 from homes in CW1, CW2, CW4, CW5, CW6, CW7, CW8, CW9, CW10 and CW11.
The hospice’s head of event management Jane Thompson said: “After the enjoyable festivities of Christmas, it is always a shame when you have to start taking decorations down.
“Why not keep that lovely warm Christmassy feel by donating to have it taken away and knowing you are supporting patient care at the Hospice?”
The minimum donation is £5, 80pc of which goes directly to the hospice and the remaining 20pc goes to other charities chosen by the organisations that help with the collection.
Residents who are valid for the tree collection can book a place by visiting charityxmastreecollection.com.
