After the twelfth night of Christmas, when the Christmas tree needs to come down, for those who prefer a grown tree in their homes there is the annual question of how to recycle your tree. For a suggested donation of £5 Phyllis Tuckwell will arrange to collect your tree and recycle your tree in an environmentally friendly way.
Phyllis Tuckwell is a hospice in Farnham for adult patients and families living with an advanced or terminal illness such as cancer, heart, lung or neurological disease. Their services are free to patents and so rely on charitable donations by members of the public and organizations. It offers medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support, but it has to raise over £20,000 a day to do this.
“To make the most of this easy and eco-friendly way to dispose of your Christmas tree after the festive season, you’ll need to register to have your tree collected. You’ll be able to make a donation to the charity too, with a suggested donation of £5. Phyllis Tuckwell’s staff and volunteers will be out and about collecting the trees on 6th, 7th and 8th January, so make sure you’ve taken all the decorations off and left it outside your house by 9am on your collection day.”
Phyllis Tuckwell plans to ‘branch out‘ further however this year collection’s only cover the postcodes: GU1, GU2, GU9, GU10, GU51 & GU52. Perhaps this would make a good present for someone you know who has a tree to recycle.
“Recycling your Christmas tree is an easy and environmentally-friendly way to dispose of it after the yuletide season, and it also raises money to help fund our care – we’ve had to cancel or postpone many of our fundraising events this year because of Coronavirus, so by supporting our tree recycling you’ll be making a big difference to local Hospice Care.” – Leanne Magee, Events Fundraiser at Phyllis Tuckwell.
