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!! 🙂
