Treecycling January 2024 with Birmingham Hospice
Via Rebecca for Birmingham Hospice
December 2023: Birmingham Hospice’s Treecycling, the region’s biggest Christmas tree-recycling campaign, is back, On Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th January, Birmingham Hospice’s volunteers will collect and recycle Christmas trees in return for a donation.
Book your collection today to save yourself a trip to the tip, ensure your Christmas tree is responsibly disposed of, and support local people in desperate need of palliative and end of life care this festive season.
Last year, Treecycling raised over £125,000 for Birmingham Hospice (previously Birmingham St Mary’s and John Taylor Hospices) by collecting and recycling over 5,400 trees from homes across Birmingham, Sandwell, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield.
Birmingham Hospice is the primary provider of adult hospice care in Birmingham and the surrounding areas. Each year, the hospice needs to raise £5.5 million through fundraising activity, income from shops and voluntary donations to cover their running costs. Money raised through Treecycling will help the charity to provide expert, compassionate and personalised care, at a time when costs are increasing and it’s becoming harder to fund vital services.
As well as making a difference to local people living with a terminal diagnosis, Treecycling is a convenient, environmentally friendly way to dispose of your Christmas tree. After your tree has been collected by volunteers, it will be chipped and turned into biomass fuel – taking the hassle out of disposing of your tree and saving it from going to landfill.
Jess Bolton, Community Campaigns and Digital Fundraising Manager at Birmingham Hospice, said:
We are so excited to welcome back Treecycling, our flagship campaign. Not only is it a great environmental service, it’s also a hugely important fundraiser for us, having raised over £600,000 since 2011.
By booking your collection and making a donation, you will make a difference to local people living with a terminal diagnosis, while making your life easier and being kinder to the environment – what’s not to love?
A huge thank you to all of our Treecycling partners, especially Fitzgerald Contractors Ltd, and to all of our wonderful volunteers who help with collecting and chipping the trees – we couldn’t do what we do without you!”
Bookings will close on Monday 8th January at noon – you can book on the Birmingham Hospice website by donating: birminghamhospice.org/treecycling Find Birmingham Hospice across social media.
