Nightingale House Hospice will once again be running a Christmas tree Collection service in January. Working in partnership with local firms and volunteers, it will be the second year the Hospice has offered the service. For a small donation, people can have their trees collected for recycling on Saturday 16th January.
Postcode Collection Areas
Postcode collection areas are LL11, LL12, LL13, LL14, LL20, CH4 0, CH4 9, CH5 and CH7. To book in your tree, visit nightingalehouse.co.uk/tree or call 01978 314 292.
There is no minimum or maximum amount you can give, however, the average donation is £10. Every penny raised will go towards patient care at the hospice. Volunteers will only collect real trees and those which have been booked in advance. There will be no collection of additional trees and you must remove all decorations.
Local businesses who have kindly volunteered their vehicles and workforce to collect and recycle the trees. These include Enviroclear, MOTUS Commercials, Read Construction, JTM Signs, Rivington Haulage, Kimpton Energy Solutions, Thorncliffe Building Supplies and Amberon.
A Massive Thank-You
Sam Amis, Hospice Community and Events Fundraiser, said: “We really would like to say a massive thank-you to everyone in our community who have supported us throughout 2020. We really could not continue without your support. The Christmas Tree Collection is one of my favourite events. It is so wonderful to see everyone coming together to help support the hospice as well as also trying to impact the environment positively. We are so lucky to live in an area with such a brilliant community spirit.”
Kasia Pugh, Engagement Manager with Read Construction, said: “We are really happy to be supporting the Nightingale House Christmas Tree Collection again this year as part of our continued support for the hospice. The first tree collection proved that local businesses coming together could make a difference and raise vital funds for Nightingale House and it’s great to support them in their second year.”
Dave Ellis, Director of Rivington Haulage Ltd said: “We are more than happy to support Nightingale House Hospice collect and recycle this year’s Christmas trees for the second year running. Personally, I have friends and family that have been affected by serious illness in recent years. Nightingale House have certainly looked after and helped patients and families through testing times. We will certainly continue to support Nightingale House and help to keep their great support network going.”
Christmas Tree Collection – a Huge Success
Johnny Lyle, Kimpton Marketing Consultant, said: “It’s thrilling to be part of the team on the Nightingale House Christmas tree collection again this year. It was a huge success last year and we thoroughly enjoyed getting involved. Christmas 2020 is going to be a very strange year for everyone. However, the work of the hospice goes on whatever is happening in the rest of the world. They desperately need our support to continue their amazing work.”
Rob Manley of Thorncliffe Building Supplies added: “We are glad to be working with and supporting the Hospice’s Christmas tree collection event. Importantly, 2020 was a very special year for Nightingale House, having provided 25 years of care in the community. With the challenges we have all faced this year, local charities are in desperate need of help. We were more than happy to help with this wonderful project.”
