Willen Hospice will once again be offering to collect and recycle real Christmas trees from homes in Milton Keynes early in the new year.
The scheme was trialled last year and through donations it raised over £3,000 for the Hospice. Anyone who lives in postcodes MK5, MK9, MK10, MK12, MK13, MK14, MK15, MK16, MK19 or MK46 can make a booking for the collection which will be on either 5 or 6 January 2019.
Head of Events and Community Fundraising, Sarah Sweet-Rowley, says, “This is a great way to support Willen Hospice during the festive season. We are delighted to be able to offer collections in more areas this year.
“If you book early to have your tree collected after Christmas, it’s just one less detail to worry about during the busy festive season”.
Bookings should be made by midday on 3 January 2019. As this is a fundraising initiative, a donation will be welcomed when bookings are made. All money raised from donations for tree collections will directly support the specialist care provided by Willen Hospice.
The success of the scheme relies on the volunteers and organisations who help to make it possible, including the Parks Trust, MK Council, HW Martin Waste Ltd and Action Express.
Each contribution will make a huge difference to the lives of patients and their friends and families.
The trees will be recycled by the MK Council who are supporting the scheme.
