Nightingale Christmas Tree Collection 2022
Support Christmas Tree Recycling
Nightingale House Hospice will once again be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling in January.
Working in partnership with local firms and volunteers, it will be the third year the hospice has offered the service. For a small donation, people can have their trees collected for recycling on Saturday 15 January 2022.
Nightingale have added the following postcodes to their collection areas this year: CH4 0, CH4 9, CH5, CH6 5, CH6 6, CH6 9, CH7, CH8 7, CH8 8, CH8 9, LL11, LL12, LL13, LL14, LL20, SY12 0, SY12 9, SY11 4 and SY11 3.
To book your tree, visit nightingalehouse.co.uk or call 01978 314 292.
There is no minimum or maximum amount you can give. Every penny raised will go towards patient care at the hospice.
Book In Advance
They will only collect real trees booked in advance. There will no collection of additional trees on the day and you must remove all decorations. Bookings will close on Sunday 9th January at 11.59pm.
Once collected, Nightingales will recycle the trees in various ways. Some will become garden mulch, some will be chipped and used for animal bedding or garden supplies. They will donate the rest to local alpaca and goat farms.
This year, the hospice will be working alongside various local businesses, including Thorncliffe Building Supplies, TG Group and WB Environmental to recycle the trees.
Local businesses, including SP Energy Networks, Rivington Haulage, Kimpton Energy Solutions and Read Construction are amongst those who will be donating their time and vehicles to collect the trees. Other firms involved are JT&M Signs, Amberon Traffic Management, Hassle Free Heating, Cable Services Group, Advanced Roofline Systems, Gurkha Gas, Barnett Engineering, Knights Construction, Ian Williams and Forest Traffic Services.
This year, 80 per cent of the money raised will go towards funding patient care and family support services at the hospice with the other 20 per cent donated back to organisations that benefit the community. Ten per cent will go to Just Helping, a national charity that helps the hospice organise the Christmas Tree Collection. The remaining 10 per cent will go to The Rhosnesni Scout Group. This group have been helping support the hospice to promote the event by delivering leaflets around the Wrexham community.
