Dispose of your Christmas tree and raise funds for St Margaret’s Hospice

Do you love having a real Christmas tree but hate having to deal with the clean up after the New Year? Don’t worry, St Margaret’s Hospice Care has the answer!

The hospice is branching out and has launched its Christmas Tree Collection scheme. A team of volunteers will be collecting Christmas trees pre booked via the website from outside people’s homes and businesses on Saturday, 15 and Sunday, 16 January 2022 in exchange for a donation to the hospice.

St Margaret’s will be collecting trees from the following postcodes: BA20BA21 and BA22 8 and BA22 9 (Yeovil area), BA5 (Wells area thanks to the Rotary Club in Wells), TA1, TA2, TA3 5 and TA3 6 (Taunton area – in partnership with Children’s Hospice South West), TA4 1, TA4 2 and TA4 3 (wider Taunton area), TA5 2 (West Somerset), TA6 3, TA6 4, TA6 5 and TA6 7 (Bridgwater area) and TA21 8 and TA21 9 (Wellington area).

Registration for tree collections is now open so if you would like to book visit https://just-helping.org.uk/register-tree/. Bookings close on Monday, 10 January 2022 so book now to avoid disappointment!

Take part in the St Margaret's Christmas Tree Collection 

Donations from the community will make a real difference to St Margaret’s so they can continue to care for patients across Somerset and their families. £10 could pay to transport a patient to and from the hospice’s Sunflower Day Care Centre where they can get help with symptom control and practical advice and £50 could pay for an hour of specialist nursing care for a patient at the hospice’s In-patient Unit.

Michelle Hancock, Head of Fundraising at St Margaret’s, said: “We are thrilled to offer a Christmas tree collection in Somerset for the first time this year.  It’s a great opportunity for people across Somerset to dispose of their Christmas trees after the festive season while making a feel-good donation to St Margaret’s.

“We’d like to say a massive thank you to the local people and businesses who are generously donating their time and vehicles to help us collect Christmas trees – there’s still time for you or your company to get involved and join our Christmas Tree crew so please get in touch if you can spare the time! We’d be very grateful for your support."
