We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who booked a Christmas tree collection, and to all the local companies and volunteers who made it possible. We collected 1252 trees across 22 routes, and worked a collective 154 hours.
We were able to expand our postcodes to more areas than ever before, and this is only thanks to the incredible support we received from individuals and organisations in our local community.
We’re particularly grateful to:
– PJC Tree Care and The Parks Trust for all the chipping of the trees
– For the vans provided by: MKM Building Supplies (Milton Keynes), John Lewis & Partners, Volkswagen UK, Kings Landscapes, The Parks Trust and Sol Services
– The amazing army of volunteers using their own vans, trailers and cars.
With your help, we have set a new record, collecting from more postcodes than ever and raising over £14,000 for Willen Hospice!
This will help us immensely, especially during these uncertain times with our shops closed and fundraising activities on hold.
