Leave the effort of getting rid of the tree to Salisbury Hospice

EVENT DATE: 26 Dec - 04 Jan

Love having a real tree at Christmas but hate the New Year clean up? Salisbury Hospice Charity have the answer.

Following the huge success of last year’s initiative during which approximately 1000 trees were collected and recycled, raising almost £13,000 of vital funds for the hospice, together with £1067 for local charity Love for Louis, we are once again running the scheme in conjunction with the charity Just Helping.

This year we are hoping the initiative will again be well supported, as so many of our key events have been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. We will also make a donation of 10% (after costs) to the local charity Charlie’s Star which provides breaks in Cornwall for bereaved parents of children under 19. The collection also helps the environment as all of the trees are chipped and recycled as animal bedding, or composted.

All that we ask is for a donation in return for the collection and recycling of your tree by our wonderful volunteers between 8th and 10th January 2021. 2021 will be our 40th year of providing palliative care in Salisbury and the surrounding areas; we have many events planned to celebrate this throughout 2021, so look out for these.

To have your tree collected and recycled after the festive season, register it at www.charityxmastreecollection.com or call 01722 416353, by 4th January 2021.
