Christmas Tree Collection for a donation

Christmas Tree Collection for a donation

 

It’s that time of the year when sadly, we see all the Christmas Trees being stripped off and the Christmas lights come down.

Oh! What to do with your Christmas Tree? You could spend an hour or two outside in the freezing cold trying to hack away all the branches, cutting it down and cramming them into the brown recycling bin or you can save yourselves some hassle and let someone else take care of it for a donation.


I came across this wonderful idea from Garden House Hospice Care, who offers hospice care free of charge to the community of Stevenage and North Herts. They would come and collect your Christmas Tree for a donation. Why not give them a call on 01462 679540 to see if they cover your area. They are very friendly.

I’m not made out of money, so I gave what I could, £10. But if you can give more then that would be so wonderful! Every little helps!

All they asked is that all trees must be stripped and left outside your house or flat for them to collect on your chosen day of either Saturday 6th January or Sunday 7th January.

Please give them a call to let them know of any special instructions.

A huge thanks to all of their volunteers and van drivers who have given up their time and use of their vans, as well as all of the garden centres who have helped make this happen!

What a wonderful way to start the New Year!! 🙂

    That is wonderful; I don’t know of anything like that here. We have a fake tree so I don’t have to worry about it, but I do have a friend that runs a small goat farm and she takes all the old trees she can get her hands on for her goats; they;ll eat it bare.

    Hi, this is a great idea I’ve not heard of anything similar where we are. I hope other organisations do this next year #FabFridayPost

    This is a fabulous idea, I guess they compost the trees? We’ve got a potted tree which lives outside most of the year! so far lasted us for three years, hopefully it will grow with the children and last for a few more years. #FabFridayPost

      Yes, that’s right, they do. Wow! 3 years is so very good! I’m not very good with plants. And they keep dying on me! lol! The is a Christmas Tree on someone front lawn here and it is as big as their 3 story house! It’s Amazing! Do you get to decorate the tree outside too? One of my friends has one outside too and she let the kids decorate hers outside too. x
