About this Collection
Christmas trees will be collected during the week beginning 13th January.
Thank you for your interest in the Christmas tree collection in aid of Katharine House Hospice. With the very kind continued support of Veolia and other volunteers, more than 691 trees were collected from the 13th January.
Every single penny donated makes such a difference to the patients at the hospice and this year, the collection raised a fabulous £7,286.46 (after costs and including Gift Aid). The hospice will receive £6,557.81 and £728.65 is going to their local chosen A Child of Mine. A Child Of Mine provides support and comfort after the most unimaginable loss, after a baby or child has died. They support families with emotional support, practical information and guidance and also offer training and education to healthcare professionals from a parent’s perspective.
If you have any queries about the Christmas tree collection or would like to get involved with the next collection please contact Andrea Pugh on tel 01785 270808 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
