Lincolnshire hospice urges local community to go green this Christmas

This Christmas St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is launching a brand new Christmas tree collection service. On Saturday 10th January the charity will collect and recycle unwanted tress in return for a small donation of just £5.

Becky Otter, Event Manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:

“We are looking forward to our brand new initiative of collecting tired Christmas trees from across Lincoln. For a suggested donation of just £5 we can collect and recycle your unwanted real Christmas tree. We are asking for £5 because this is how much it costs to buy a meal for a patient in our hospice.”

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice are working in partnership with B & B Tree Specialists who are recycling all of the trees for free.

Becky said: “We are collecting trees in LN1, LN2, LN3, part of LN4, LN5 and LN6. People can visit our website to see a map of the areas we are collecting and register for their collection. We are encouraging everyone to let the hospice take away the stress and mess of disposing their trees whilst helping to raise vital funds for the hospice.”

To register your tree for collection visit: www.stbarnabashospice.co.uk/treecycle or contact Fundraising on 01522 540 300 or email fundraising@stbarnabashospice.co.uk

Booking forms for the collection service are also available from hospice shops, Doddington Hall, Fillingham Christmas Trees and Pennels.
