JustHelping is organising Christmas tree collections across Greater Manchester to raise money for charities including St Ann’s Hospice this winter.
Their Christmas tree recycling service takes the headache out of disposing of your Christmas tree, while giving you the option to support local people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
Trees will be collected by volunteers between 11th and 13th January 2019, so register yours for collection now at www.charityxmastreecollection.com, where you will be given the option to make a voluntary donation. All real Christmas trees are recyclable and are shredded into chippings to be used locally in parks and sports clubs.
Last year community groups in the area collected nearly 1,600 trees and raised an incredible £15,650.96 for St Ann’s, so we really encourage you to spread the word and tell your friends!
We’re excited to see if we can raise even more money for charities like St Ann’s this year. JustHelping brings people from across the local community together to volunteer and raise funds for good causes like the hospice, and by recycling the trees we collect we are also helping the environment, too. Clare Hinton, Chief Executive of JustHelping
This year JustHelping are collecting trees in SK2, SK3, SK4, SK5, SK6, SK7, SK8 and M20 postcodes, as well as parts of M21, M22, M33, WA14 and WA15.
The money raised by the JustHelping team and the local community groups who collect the Christmas trees really does help us to make a difference to the lives of our patients and their families.
This project is a perfect example of communities working together for the good of others, and shows a real sense of pride in Greater Manchester - something we know Mancunians and Salfordians have so much of.
Thanks very much to the whole team, and everyone who chooses to sign up for a tree collection and make a donation to the hospice. We can’t thank you enough. Eamonn O'Neal, Chief Executive
