Chelmsford City Council are once again supporting Farleigh Hospice and encouraging residents to recycle their real Christmas trees this year, whilst also helping a great cause.
On the 5 and 6 January 2019, a dedicated team of staff and volunteers will be making their rounds throughout Chelmsford and the surrounding villages, collecting Christmas trees for a suggested minimum donation of £5 to Farleigh Hospice.
The trees will be collected from the following postcodes CM0, CM1, CM2, CM3, CM7, CM8, CM9 and CM77.
Last year’s donated trees were taken to General Farm in Boreham to be chipped, and the chippings were used in Chelmsford’s City Council’s parks.
Every penny that is raised will make a huge difference to those facing life-limiting illnesses. All of Farleigh Hospices services are free of charge and without the generosity of the local community they would not be able to care for nearly 4,000 people every year, help carers and families, offer bereavement support and continue to be an integral part of the local community.
Please register your interest by visiting www.farleighhospice.org/trees or calling 01245 457 411, to book your collection.
