Recycled Trees Help East Cheshire Hospice
The tree cycling in aid of East Cheshire Hospice has been even more successful this year. Final figures are still being compiled but we have already we have collected over £64,500.
The total number of trees collected was 6,100. With other monies such as late payers, sponsorship, and gift aid still to come in we expect to give to our Hospice a net total well in excess of last year's figure of 71,150. Over the 15 years of collecting Christmas trees the total net amount raised for our Hospice is now over £550,000.
This is a great success and could only be achieved with the help of generous donors such as yourselves.
