Gloucestershire charity launches Christmas tree recycling scheme

Get the new year off to a charitable and environmentally friendly start by booking a Christmas tree collection to raise money for Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice.

Households in Gloucestershire can kick off the new year with a good deed, supporting the Christmas Treecycling initiative run by Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice in Cheltenham.

As well as keeping trees from ending up in landfill, the special tree recycling service is designed to raise much-needed funds, which allow the hospice to offer free treatment and support to local people with life-limiting conditions.

In return for a donation of your choosing, Sue Ryder will collect your Christmas tree from outside your address and take it away to be turned into woodchip mulch – with a little help from Gloucestershire’s Greenway Tree Care and Landscaping.

‘Each Christmas tree we collect and each donation that is made will help us to continue supporting people to make the most of the time they have left – and filling their last moments with love and care,’ said Alysia Cameron-Price, community fundraising manager at Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice.

The only palliative care inpatient unit in Gloucestershire, Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice relies on donations to cover over 70 per cent of its costs in providing compassionate palliative care and bereavement support for families in Gloucestershire.

Register your Christmas tree by Saturday 9 January 2022 for collection from selected GL postcodes between Wednesday 12 January and Saturday 15 January 2022.
