Prospect Hospice offering a Christmas tree collection service
SUPPORT Prospect Hospice by having your Christmas tree picked up.
The hospice has teamed up with the charity Just Helping to collect real trees for the first time from homes and businesses in and around Swindon, in exchange for a donation.
Imagine Cruising, based at Royal Wootton Bassett, supports Prospect’s Christmas tree collection by making a financial donation.
In addition to helping the hospice provide care to terminally ill patients and their loved ones, the collection will benefit the environment as the trees will be recycled into chips and used locally.
Volunteers will collect and recycle Christmas trees from the following areas on Saturday January 8 and Sunday January 9, 2022:
SN1, SN2, SN3, SN4, SN5, SN6 6, SN6 7, SN25 1, SN25 2, SN25 3 and SN25 4.
To organize a collection, book at www.prospect-hospice.net/treecollection before noon on January 4th.
Prospect Hospice Revenue Manager Sheryl Crouch said, “We wish everyone in our community a peaceful and happy Christmas and thank them for all their support over the past year.
“If you’re celebrating Christmas with a real Christmas tree this year and wondering what to do with it after the holiday season is over, we can take it back and recycle it.
“All we ask in return is a donation to help us care for patients and support their families.
“We are very happy to be able to offer residents and businesses the opportunity to have their real Christmas trees picked up and recycled.
“It’s a simple way to support the hospice and, thanks to you, patients in our community will receive care tailored to their needs. ”
* The hospice is attractive to people who wish to volunteer for the Christmas tree collection this weekend. ”
Anyone interested can contact them by sending an email to Volunteering@prospect-hospice.net or by calling 01793 816193.
Prospect Hospice treats thousands of patients each year in the community of Swindon and North Wiltshire. All of its services are free thanks to charitable donations.
