Opting for a real Christmas tree this year, but not sure how to recycle it when the festive season is over? We're inviting people to sign up for our charity Christmas tree collection service and show support for Julia's House and the families of seriously ill children that we care for.
Helped by a team of volunteers from local business and community groups, Julia's House will carry out Christmas tree collections between 11th and 13th January in Wiltshire and Dorset.
The real trees will then be taken to Old Potato Yard in Devizes, Adventure Pirate in Lytchett Minster and ECO Sustainable Solutions in Christchurch, and recycled as chippings for use on local farmland and community spaces.
It’s the third year Julia's House has run its tree collection service. For everyone signing up, there is the option to make a suggested donation of £10 to support our lifeline of care for local families.
Last year, Julia’s House recycled 630 Christmas trees and raised more than £7,000 with our collection service across both Wiltshire and Dorset.
Claudia Hickin, Community Fundraiser for Julia’s House, said, “We’re delighted to be running our charity Christmas tree collection again this year. When it’s time to take the baubles and tinsel down, we’ll be ready with our friendly team of helpers to collect and recycle your real tree from your doorstep. Any donations made to Julia’s House children’s hospice will make a vital difference in helping us to care for local children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families.”
Registration for the Julia’s House Christmas tree collection and recycling service closes at midday on 8th January.
