[A]re you having a real Christmas Tree this year within your home or business? Do you live or work in the CA1, CA2 or CA3 postcode area?
Hospice at Home is excited to be organising a new fundraising initiative in Carlisle that not only recycles trees after the festive season but also hopes to raise vital funds for this local charity.
For the very first time, Hospice at Home will be offering a tree collection service in the city of Carlisle in the New Year. The process is simple. Supporters book their tree collection via the event website and make a donation of their choice to Hospice at Home.
On Friday 13th and Saturday 14th January 2017 the charity will collect the trees and take them to North West Recycling at Kingmoor Park Rockcliffe Estate, who are supporting the appeal. No trips to the tip or needles in your car – just leave the trees in your front garden and Hospice at Home will do the rest!
The Charity hope this initiative will raise great funds to enable their Clinical Team to continue to provide a vital service in the North and East of Cumbria.
Cath Coates, Fundraiser, said “We are excited to be launching this new fundraising initiative for the city of Carlisle and hope members of the community will join in with the appeal by booking their trees in for collection! We hope the initiative offers a simple solution to the task of disposing your tree that will also directly benefit people within our local area. The funds raised from the donations given will enable us to support and care for patients who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting and life-threatening illness.
“We hope this event will be a success and would look to expand the postcode areas from which we can collect in years to come.”
The Charity would like to thank Carlisle Refrigeration, North West Recycling, Community Reach and local schools, volunteers and businesses who have all supported this fundraiser.
