Tree-mendous! Hospice turns Christmas trees to cash for patient care

St Luke’s staff and volunteers were hard at work this January as the community came together to support their Christmas Tree Collection.

Between Thursday 13th and Sunday 16th January, more than 60 volunteers were involved, altogether managing to collect 2,824 individual trees and raising £40,000 in donations for the Hospice.

Jane Thompson, Head of Event Management at St Luke’s said, “Every year we seem to get a better response to our tree collection and this year has been the most successful yet.”

“We are delighted to receive so much support from the local community, whether that is through donations or the dedicated volunteers that worked tirelessly throughout the weekend to make sure everyone’s tree was responsibly shredded.”

“This simply wouldn’t be possible without their brilliant support and donations which will provide a wonderful New Year’s boost to the Hospice. Huge thanks to everyone who has supported this year’s collection.”

St Luke’s tree collection is run in conjunction with JustHelping. The Hospice also worked with a large team of local corporates including ANSA, Melody Corporation, Willis Bros, SP Energy and Roof Plus.

The collection was also supported by local organisations such as, Northwich and Middlewich Round Tables, Rotary Club of Tarporley, Pettypool Guide Camp, NARPO, Reaseheath College, Marbury Country Park, Holmes Chapel Community Centre, Four Lane Ends Farm, Sutton Lane Farm and Premier Stores Cuddington.

St Luke’s are extremely grateful to everyone in the community that showed their support for this year’s Christmas Tree Collection.
