A hospice tree recycler collecting last year.

Can you help recycle Christmas trees for charity?

A hospice charity that is offering a fundraising Christmas tree recycling service has appealed for drivers or wood chippers in South Holland who might be able to help pick up trees in the new year.

The St Barnabas Hospice Tree-cycle has launched once again, which will see staff and supporters of the Hospice driving across Lincolnshire to collect and recycle Christmas trees.

Across parts of Lincolnshire, teams from St Barnabas Hospice will be out and about in January, collecting trees.

For a suggested donation of £10, their team elves will collect a tree, chip it and recycle it.

A spokesman said: “It’s a win for you, the Hospice and the environment!”

The scheme doesn’t yet operate in South Holland, however. But you could be one of the people to change that, if you have access to a van or a wood chipper.

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice marketing assistant Hannah Dawson said: “If people can get in touch to volunteer with vans or a wood chipper in the Spalding area, we can add a Spalding route in. The more the word gets out about what we’re doing, we’re hopeful that more supporters will come on board to facilitate a collection on a larger scale.”

Anyone able to help can email melissa.gaffney@stbarnabashospice.co.uk or call 01522 540300.
