Christmas trees hospice scheme

St Luke’s Hospice staff and volunteers have raised a tree-mendous £40,000 from their Christmas Trees Collection scheme.

More than 60 volunteers teamed up between January 13-16 to collect 2,824 individual Christmas trees from people’s homes in return for donations for the Hospice.

Jane Thompson, Head of Event Management at St Luke’s, said: “Every year we seem to get a better response to our tree collection and this year has been the most successful yet.

“We are delighted to receive so much support from the local community, whether that is through donations or the dedicated volunteers that worked tirelessly throughout the weekend to make sure everyone’s tree was responsibly shredded.

“This simply wouldn’t be possible without their brilliant support and donations which will provide a wonderful New Year’s boost to the Hospice. Huge thanks to everyone who has supported this year’s collection.”

St Luke’s tree collection is run in conjunction with JustHelping.

    What a fantastic effort by the staff and volunteers to raise so much money. Very proud of my NARPO Members who volunteered to assist. Everyone involved deserves recognition for giving their time and effort. Well done, you are all stars.
