If you’re already sweeping up the pine needles, you may have started to think about how you’re going to dispose of your Christmas tree.

One way to avoid having to vacuum the car after a trip to the tip, is to let someone else take the tree away for you and local charity Phyllis Tuckwell is offering a Christmas tree recycling service to raise money to help fund its care, so, they say, by signing up you’ll be helping both the environment and hospice care, as well as making life a lot easier for yourself.

If you are in the GU1, GU2, GU9, GU10, GU51 and GU52 postcode areas and wish to use the service you’ll need to register and make a donation to Phyllis Tuckwell 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 Wednesday 6th, and it will be collected on one of those three days.

Leanne Magee, events fundraiser at Phyllis Tuckwell said: “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.”

The Phyllis Tuckwell charity provides supportive and end of life care for local patients and families living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer. It offers medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support, and all of its services are given free of charge to its patients and their families, but it has to raise over £20,000 a day to do this.
