About this Collection

The Christmas tree recycling scheme helps to raise vital funds for the hospice. Did you know it costs £2.9million to run the hospice each year. Your donation will make a real difference to our patients and their families and will allow us to continue to provide our care and services completely free of charge.

During the festive season, we would like you to think of Dr Kershaw's Hospice and let us collect and recycle your tree this year.

We are collecting trees on Saturday 13 January and Sunday 14 January 2018 



We would like to thank all our hard working volunteers that will be collecting your trees, their help means that every penny of your donation goes directly to helping patients and their families when they need it most. 

For further information about the Christmas tree collection or if you would like to volunteer to help, please call us on 0161 624 9984 or email the fundraising team on


About the Hospice

Dr Kershaw’s Hospice provides a range of services tailored to those within the community living with life-limiting illness, along with their families.

Our inpatient unit can accommodate up to 12 patients at any one time. The medical and nursing staff are experienced in palliative medicine and are supported by a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) of specialist nurses, allied health professionals, social workers, spiritual leaders and bereavement support workers who assist in providing a seamless service for patients across hospital, community and hospice boundaries. This multi-disciplinary approach allows the palliative care team to address the physical, emotional, spiritual and social concerns that arise with advanced illness.

Dr Kershaw's also operates a Hospice at Home service which provides patients and their families with the appropriate level of additional care required, to ensure the patient has the support they need to remain in their own home if this is their preferred place of care and to prevent any unnecessary admissions to the hospital.

The Hospice is also proud to be supporting and delivering a new lymphoedema service in partnership with Pennine Care.

We are also able to offer Physiotherapy, Complimentary Therapy, Pastoral and Spirtual Support.
