teesside hospice launch real christmas tree recycling scheme

Teesside Hospice is offering a Christmas tree collection service to raise funds to help care for local people suffering from cancer and other life limiting illnesses.

Households across the Teesside area are being encouraged to go green this Christmas and help to support their local hospice with this new fundraising initiative.

The scheme, supported by Northgate Vehicle Hire, will see 6 vans covering Teesside postcodes from TS1 to TS23 collecting real Christmas trees in return for a donation to the hospice.

Northgate Vehicle Hire Branch Manager, John Saint said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Teesside Hospice Christmas tree recycling scheme, this is a community initiative with local volunteers and vehicles to help load and dispose of the trees and we wish the scheme every success with lots of community spirit along the way”.

The collection, which is run entirely by volunteers will take place during the 5th – 7th January 2018.

The collected Christmas trees will then be chipped and recycled by Askham Bryan College and used within the paddocks, the walled gardens and kitchen gardens to create new paths in Stewart Park.

Askham Bryan College Director of Stewart Park, Nick Barnes said: “It’s brilliant that the collected Christmas trees will be recycled and used within Stewart Park to enhance the Park, a fantastic local area that will directly benefit from this scheme, we hope everyone gets behind this appeal.”

Teesside Hospice Fundraising Manager, Debbie Coulson, said: “Our Christmas tree recycling scheme is the simplest, greenest and most charitable way to get rid of your Christmas tree after the festive period.

“Let us take away the stress of disposing of your Christmas tree and help us to raise vital funds for Teesside Hospice. Donations are crucial to the success of this event and to ensuring that we can continue to provide our vital care.”

To register a collection book online today: www.charityxmastreecollection.com. All trees must be registered by 2nd January 2018 at midday. For further information call Teesside Hospice Fundraising on 01642 811150.
