Christmas Tree Collection Campaign has been a phenomenal success!

January 2019

Last year's collection saw a team of volunteers collect 300 trees, this year the team collected over 600 trees raising more than £7,500 for the hospice, more than doubling last year’s fundraising efforts!


The scheme, which was run in conjunction with our charity partner Just Helping, expanded the collection area to include all SP1 and SP2 postcodes and parts of SP3, SP4 and SP5.

 
Once the trees were collected they were chipped by tree surgeons James Ockenden and Gary Thompson and recycled at Rose Farm Hurdcott by kind permission of Mr Geoff Goddard. We would like to thank them, all of our wonderful volunteers, UDrive Salisbury, Public Health England, TSB, James Hay, Neil Smith Builder, Pizza Hut Delivery Salisbury and Breeze Environmental for their outstanding support.


Tamsin Murley, Community Fundraiser for Salisbury Hospice Charity said:


'I am delighted at the incredible success of this year’s Christmas Tree Collection campaign and would like to thank most sincerely, everyone who’s volunteered and helped us collect, chip and recycle over 600 trees, raising the incredible sum of over £7,500 for our hospice. Thank you.'
