After a fantastic few days more than 860 Christmas trees have been collected from homes across the county – raising a tremendous £10,000.
From Friday, 12th January to Sunday, 14th January, teams of volunteers from a host of organisations were out collecting trees – before taking them to be recycled.
We ran the campaign in partnership with the charity JustHelping and asked people to make a donation in return for recycling their trees – helping support our free care to patients living with life-limiting illnesses and other local charities.
We would like to say a big thank you to all the volunteers who collected trees, including representatives from ACW TREES, Nationwide Building Society, Fortis Living, Rybrook Worcester BMW, Rock Power Connections Ltd, Walsh Construction Ltd, Leigh Sinton Christmas Trees – Worcestershire, Cotswold Drainage, Henson Plant Evesham, Instant Scenery, David’s Nurseries, Worcester Countryside Centre, Karndean Designflooring, Green Trak Ltd and Gwillam’s Farm Shop.
After costs, 90 per cent of the money raised will go St Richard’s – with the remaining 10 per cent donated to other local charities.
