Due to adverse weather we have had to defer the Collection by a week. It will now take place on the weekend of 21st/22nd January.
We are sorry for this but we have a duty of care to our volunteers and had to make a decision that sending out 41 vans collecting trees at the moment could lead to accidents or injuries.
We are proud to announce that we have been honoured with the prestigious Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the MBE for volunteer groups. More details.
In January 2016 the 16th annual Christmas Tree Collection for East Cheshire Hospice raised over £102,000 to help meet its fund-raising need for £7,500 per day for running costs. This broke the previous record of £91,000.
This made a total of over £678,000 donated to the Hospice by supporters of the Christmas Tree Collection since 2001. These figures represent the amount going to the Hospice after expenses.
Over 6,800 individual collections were made using 37 vans and support from over 130 volunteers each day and over 69 tonnes of Christmas Trees were responsibly recycled. Thank you again to those who supported the 2016 collection.
The 2017 collection will take place on and . We hope to increase the amount donated to the Hospice.
